A different take on Old Elk Wheated Bourbon Barrels, these barrels have a light char, which tends to build upon sweeter flavors when barrel-aging.

Old Elk Wheated Bourbon Light Char Barrels are freshly emptied and once used, but have a different flavor profile compared to heavy char barrels. 

There’s still plenty of bourbon flavors to pull from the oak staves, but the lighter char depth adds complexity and depth, while also not taking away as much of the sweet flavors already found in the beer, cider, mead or wine that’s aging in the barrel.


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).
