Barrel aged cocktails are one of the latest trends in mixology in which pre-mixed cocktails are placed in barrels to mature. The technique’s purpose is to change the cocktail’s character and flavor, mellowing any sharper flavors in the same way wines and distilled spirits are aged.
These specially designed handcrafted small oak barrels are ideal for your home and gift use. You can use our oak barrels for aging and mellowing liquors like whisky, rums, tequilas or homemade wines. Indulge or put a smile on someone’s face. Either way your new oak barrel will give you years of enjoyment.
But just as spirits, wine and beer benefit from aging in oak barrels, so do pre-mixed cocktails. Barrel-aged cocktails are made and served at bars and restaurants across the country, but unlike wine or spirits, they are just as easy to make at home. Allowing classics like the Sazerac or Manhattan to age in oak for a month allows flavors to mellow and soften, while also adding new dimension.
