Freshly emptied white 225/228 l port wine barrels.
Port wine is a dessert wines and was named after the port city of Porto in Portugal. In Europe, the term "port wine" is a protected term and only wine that meets certain criteria may call itself so.
For example, the grapes must come from the Douro Valley and the wine must mature in an oak barrel for at least three years. During this time, the port wine develops its flavor and an alcohol content of 18-21% by volume.
The white port, made from light grapes, darkens more and more with time. In contrast, red port wine becomes lighter with age.
Young port offers an intense red berry flavor to your distillates and an older port trumps with its subtle and spicy aroma.

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.
