Aged gin barrels are a very rare commodity. The aging of gin in wooden barrels has just been given a fresh lease of life. And talking of fresh – herein lies the forte of gin barrels. The bitter and herbaceous spice of resin and grass from the juniper berries produces an incomparable flavour which can be imparted to your distillate by aging or finishing it in used gin barrels. The flavour diversity and complexity of gin is an interesting component in the distillates finishing process. Not for nothing is gin a popular player on the bar scene. After all, gin, due to its flavour, is an indispensable ingredient in many cocktails, reflecting its diversity but also its compatibility. The compatibility of flavours shows how a barrel, through its aging of gin, can give a product that certain something.

Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
