Age your beer in barrels that still hold Templeton Rye Whiskey’s balanced, clean and incredibly smooth taste deep inside their staves.

Please note: These are head bung barrels that can be easily stored vertically and stacked on pallets. If you would like a belly bung, then please order from THIS LISTING and we will drill a 2-inch bunghole in the side for horizontal storage at no extra charge (additional bung included).

Aged in the heartland of the U.S., Iowa's Templeton Rye Whiskey is a premium spirit known for its silky smooth flavors. This has made it a popular choice for many whiskey drinkers.

These barrels, which have head bungs, have been freshly emptied and used once to age whiskey for 4.5 years. Now, you can fill them and barrel-age beer, cider, wine or other beverages. 

Some of the tasting notes you can pull from the barrels include dry, grassy and natural spice flavors, plus hints of caramel, butterscotch, toffee and allspice.

Please note: These are head bung (top fill) barrels that can be stacked vertically on pallets to conserve space. Read our blog post or watch our video to learn more about head bung barrels.

If you would like a belly bung, then please order from THIS LISTING and we will drill a hole in the sides before shipping.
