Originally handcrafted by a master cooper using the finest American, Hungarian or French Oak, each barrel is unique and packs plenty of character. Because barrel building is a custom process done by hand, no two barrels will ever be the same. The featured selections are not exact representations of the barrel you will receive as each denotes one-of-a-kind coloration, wood grain and engraving finish. Wine barrels WITH marks will come with a winery stamp, cooperage markings or possibly both! We try and select barrels with the flattest heads from our constantly rotating inventory. For barrels being used as a table top, the wine styles typically work best as they are generally more flat than the whiskey styles.

To produce the head style, the top of the barrel is cut off. The wine style includes two galvanized bands while the whiskey displays one rustic ring. All rings are attached to the barrel head with screws. Because the whiskey style is more variable, a 2×4” board is attached to the back for reinforcement. Wine barrel heads do not include the board.

  • Genuine Reclaimed California Wine Barrels
  • Authentic Retired Kentucky Bourbon Barrels
  • No two barrels ever the same
