15 Gallon - Used Oak Barrels from Sugar House Distillery

Barrels are PRE-ORDER item that we do not have in stock!

You can order online, and we will call you when they become available from the distillery, which may take up to three weeks. However, this insures you are getting a freshly dumped whisky barrel straight from the distillery. 

Sugar House Distillery sources the highest quality ingredients available in the industry. They use only 100% malted barley for their Malt Whisky. No additives. No artificial colors or flavors. Never chill filtered. Just grain, yeast, and time; finished with a little water and a lot of skill.

These No.3 Char American oak barrels - adds super dark color, smoke, vanilla, and caramel flavors with nice tannin structure to the hand crafted whisky from Sugar House Distillery. From there, they are dumped and ready for you to use with your hand crafted beer. See the Additional Information tab for more info on how to maintain your barrel.


Additional Information


All Barrels - Char Level 3

All barrels are meant to leak. In summer heat the pressure will expand and you might get a small amount leaking. Maybe even in a couple spots. Barrels have no glue to keep them together only the pressure of the wood pushing together. So keeping a barrel hydrated is important.
If a barrel is not hydrated the rings will have a loss fit on the barrel. If you see the bands tight more than likely it is fine. If you fill your barrel and you have a small leak set the barrel so it will not leak and daily shake the barrel so that spot will get some moisture. Most of the time it will fix the problem.
If you need to hydrate the barrel. Take a container with a larger diameter of the barrel sitting on the end. A small plastic pool is perfect. Put four to five inches of water in the pool and set the barrel on it's end for 24 hours. Then 24 hours later flip the barrel and soak the other end. So the ends with the logo on the barrel will be sitting in the water. The wood will pull the water and hydrate the barrel. We take a cup and pour on the top end a few times a day. Never fill the barrel with water to hydrate it. It might get a little water in it when you hydrate but it will be fine.
Depending what product you are aging in your barrel you should get multiple uses out of it. We have seen beer aged in them in as soon as a week, and as long as six months. Remember these 15 gallon barrels have a larger surface area vs the amount of liquid of a 53 gallon barrel. With that being said they will flavor much quicker than if you aged in a full sized barrel.
If you want to watch some video's on repairing a barrel you can look at this website. If you need a hoop pushed on bring it by the distillery we would be happy to tighten it for you. Unless you let it dry for a long time you should not need to repair or hydrate a barrel.
