This Portuguese speciality inspires not only by its rarity, but also with your incomparably exciting sensory possibilities. Already for 20 years these barrels are in use, the last 10 years of aging of liqueur wine from Muscatel (type Roxo & Branco). The barrels were used for aging under the care of Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal in the Óbidos region. The high sugar content of 38 g/l shows a clear direction. Not only does sugar act as a natural flavor enhancer, but in the form of these pre-used barrels, it brings an exciting aroma structure and thus basis for your distillate. The taste is powerfully fruity with notes of jam and dried fruit. The 300 l barrels fresh from Portugal are only limited available in the summer of 2023.

By default, the drums are equipped with a used wooden or plastic bung. If you want a new silicone bung, you can order it under accessories (type standard - C16).
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.
