Old Elk Master Distiller Greg Metze is one of the world’s best when it comes to working with rye. That’s why these barrels can be counted on to deliver an amazing range of spice, pepper and other flavors to your barrel-aged beer, wine, cider or other beverage.

After being used only once, the barrels were freshly emptied and then sent directly to our warehouse. They are ready to add some kick to your next barrel-aged release.

Important note: These are head bung barrels.


Fresh barrels will be shipped via a LTL motor freight provider. To ensure safety and freshness of your barrels, they are wrapped in plastic and strapped down to a pallet with a label identifying the pallet contents. 

Barrels can be shipped up to 4 barrels per pallet and 8 barrels per skid (two pallets high). 

Shipment transit times vary depending on location, weather and carrier capacity. For specific delivery dates, expedited shipping, preferred shipping carrier or unique delivery requests contact us directly to arrange your shipment prior to ordering. 

At checkout you will be asked to confirm your delivery location type. If you do not have a loading dock or forklift, a liftgate will be required. Offloads by hand are not available. 


Local pickup is available from our Lincoln, NE warehouse.
