Distillery 291 aged its Colorado Bourbon Whiskey in these 10 gallon barrels for less than two years before emptying them and sending them our way. They would work well for any homebrewers looking to try a barrel-aged beer for their next homebrewing project.

But these small barrels would play well with other beverages, too! The bourbon whiskey aged in these barrels left behind notes of vanilla, cherry and spice. Fill with beer, wine, cider or other beverage – even maple syrup, honey and other food products – to impart those flavors.

Important notes: Remember, these are used barrels, so expect small imperfections and cracks on the barrel. Each barrel has been inspected to ensure they are liquid tight. All barrels come with a wood bung. The previous bung and used oak spirals may also be inside the barrel. This will not affect aging quality. Not all barrels have a 291 engraving on the head.
