Our French & European Oak Barrels are made from the Quercus Robur species of oak timber. This species of oak grows widely across France and Eastern Europe.
Our barrels are expertly crafted from only the strongest heart wood. The staves are then hand carved to a thickness of 20mm. Fastened with stainless steel hoops, fixed with small screws so they will not move. All barrels are coated with a raw linseed oil, which not only brings out the natural colour and texture of the oak timber but will help protect your barrel for years to come.
All barrels are charred inside (light-medium). All our Oak Barrels include an oak barrel, beautiful oak stand, bung and tap along with our maintenance and maturation guidebook.
Because each barrel is hand made each barrel is unique.
The approximate size of each is;
1L - 18 cm length *17 (diameter) - (20 cm height with stand). 1.7 kg
2L- 22 cm length *18 (diameter) - (24 cm height with stand). 2.6 kg
