There’s a reason whiskey is so delicious: it’s spent a chunk of its life aging in immense wooden casks, allowing flavors to grow and harmonize over time. This one-liter version brings that process home, and works way faster because of the smaller scale. You can use it to age all kinds of booze, like white whiskey (aka moonshine), rum, tequila, and even gin.

Getting Started & Barrel Care
To cure your barrel, insert your spigot by hand, pushing it in as far as it’ll go. Put a kitchen towel over it for protection, then gently hammer it in with a mallet (or something else heavy) until it’s secure. Once the barrel’s cured, the spigot will permanently stay in that position. Cure the barrel by funneling in some (near-boiling) hot water into the bunghole, then sealing the bung and placing the barrel in the sink or on top of a towel for three-to-five days before use. Make sure you remove the bung before using the spigot. Basic physics here—if there’s no airflow, nothing will pour out. The barrel can be reused over and over again with proper care. If you're aging another spirit immediately after finishing a batch, there's no need to clean it in between uses. If you're not going to age anything else right away, store the barrel full of water.

Detailed instructions are included with this product.

  • Start by curing your barrel with hot water for three-to-five days to seal up any gaps.
  • Fill up the tank with your base liquor or cocktail using a funnel, seal it with the bung, and let it sit.
  • Taste weekly. Those signature charred notes will start to develop within two or three weeks. Don't wait too long, though, or evaporation may get the best of it.
  • When you’re ready, use the spigot to pour yourself a glass straight or bottle it out of the barrel.
