Toasted Small Oak Barrels and Kegs for Wine Making

Our small oak barrels and wine kegs are artisan crafted from oak and are best suited to oaken small batches of wine and port.

Such a small oak barrel gets medium toasted to impart stronger tannins that enables it's wine to oaken at a much quicker rate when compared to a larger winery oak barrel.

These small oak barrels are available in 2, 3, 5 and 10 litres and each wooden barrel is banded with 4 steel rings and in a light or rustic outer oak wood finish.

Charred Mini Oak Barrels and Casks for Whisky Maturing

Available in 2, 3 and 5 liters, our small oak barrels and whiskey casks are charred inside and therefore ideal as a quick way to mature, colour and flavour small batches of whisky or other spirits.

A charred small oak barrel or cask is a great way to mellow a small amount of whiskey but it must be kept in mind that such miniature barrel would mature spirits and distillates by ten folds when compared to larger whisky oak cask.

Currently our miniature whisky barrels come with 4 brass hoops with a dark brown rustic finish.

Decorative Wooden Barrels, Kegs and Casks for Wine or Spirit Serving

An artisan made oak wood barrel or keg is typically natural on it's inside and is equally good to mildly oaken it's contents including wine, spirits, liquors and vinegar.

Our small oak barrels come in 2, 3 and 5 litres and include a wooden stand, a bung and a small tap.

Available in different finishes and attractively banded with brass hoops, these small wooden barrels also make a great decorative and functional rustic dispenser with which to adorn any cellar, tasting room, kitchen, bar or restaurant.

By custom order and subject to minimum order we can also offer small oak barrels that are waxed inside.

Metal Taps, Spouts and Spigots for a Wooden Barrel, Keg or Cask

We do offer a variety of tapered metal, brass, stainless steel and wooden taps that match our miniature wooden barrels and larger oak kegs, casks and vats.

A spout's choice must depend on it's material compatibility with the wooden barrel's contents followed by aesthetic considerations.

Our smaller metal taps may be hard to find and are a great fit for small wooden barrels and kegs.
