The Barrel Aging Kit is the perfect gift idea for the bourbonite. This real oak barrel kit includes everything you need to make and age your own bourbon, including 3 exquisite flavors of bourbon starter so you can begin to sample the broad spectrum of taste and character within the bourbon family.

Each Barrel Connoisseur Kit includes our premium wrought iron stand, an authentic oak aging barrel in your choice of one, two, or five liter size, spigot & bung, barrel cleaning kit, and a starter pack of three sublime varieties of bourbon essence. Each barrel is charred to perfection on the inside, which provides the classic aged oak flavor to your bourbon distilling experience.

This make-your-own-bourbon gift package is a stellar gift idea for the bourbon enthusiast. Helping you jump into the grand tradition of home distillery, each one of our oak bourbon barrels has its own distinct flavor profile. This is because of slight variations in each oak tree used to make the staves, the individuality of the charring process, weather and climate fluctuations, the size (and therefore surface area) of the barrel, and so on.

Add the unique flavors of your very own brand of home-distilled bourbon whiskey to this American tradition with our Bourbon Barrel Connoisseur Kit! Kit contains everything you need - except alcohol, which you will have to provide - to make three batches of bourbon, and you can always get refills!

Great last minute gift idea: ships out in 1 business day!
