    Overview

    If you love the look and feel of those old-school speakeasies, then this American oak barrel beverage dispenser and aging system is a must-have for your home bar or man cave.

    The barrel is handcrafted from American White Oak, with a medium toast finish and four black steel bands hugging the exterior. The charred interior makes it ideal for aging spirits, wine, beer, and batched cocktails.

    An included cradle stand holds the barrel steady, so you can keep it filled with the beverage of your choice and place it on a bar, counter, or any other flat surface. The barrel also comes with a bung and spigot so you are ready to dispense. Just be sure to sure the barrel before first use.

    Whether you use it simply to dispense your favorite beverage, or to age homemade brews and spirits, this spigotted oak barrel will not disappoint.

    Features
    • Handcrafted from American White Oak
    • Polyurethane satin finish
    • Made with 4 black steel bands
    • Medium toast
    • Perfect for homebrewing, aging various spirits, or dispensing drinks of all kinds
    • Interior of the barrel is charred, no artificial paraffin wax is used
    • Curing Your Barrel Before First Use:
      • First rinse the inside of the barrel by filling and emptying 2 or 3 times to remove any wood debris
      • Prior to use, your barrel must be filled with water for approximately 3 to 5 days
      • This will allow the oak to expand and retain liquid. (The barrel may leak until cured.)
      • After this initial curing period, place the barrel on the holder in a dry area
      • Liquid will continue to slowly drain through the wood for the following 3 to 7 days
      • Keep the barrel filled during this time
      • When the barrel stops draining, empty the contents and rinse again
      • You are now ready to fill your barrel for use

    It says it can dispense drinks of all kinds. What about the quality of the product coming out of it? I plan on using it to dispense mead. Will the oak affect the clarity of my drink?

    BEST ANSWER: i have purchased two kinds of barrels. the charred barrel will give the liquid a bit of a smoky flavor and will impart some of the color from the charring, think bourbon.
    the uncharred barrel gives the liquid just a slight blonde coloring (i used it to age some grain alcohol). the color was a modest change and imparted only a small amount of the oak flavor. it should not be noticable with mead. hope this helps.
    We want to fill the barrel with commercial moonshine and dispense to make cocktails. Will this work for that purpose?

    BEST ANSWER: Hi Chris,

    We see no reason why this would not work for your purpose, it sounds like a great idea! Before using, you have to "cure" the barrel first for 3 to 5 days to ensure it doesn't leak. An instruction sheet detailing that process in included with your order.

    Cheers!
