The Barrel Aging Kit for making your own Irish Whiskey is a premium gift idea for a home distilling enthusiast who loves the age-old "water of life." Irish Whiskey is fast becoming one of the most popular spirits, with distilleries popping up all over the place. You can get in on this trend and begin aging authentic Irish Whiskey for yourself, and reap the rewards!!
Each Irish Whiskey Barrel Connoisseur Kit includes an attractive premium wrought iron stand, an American white oak wood aging barrel in your choice of one, two, or five liter size, the accompanying spigot & bung, a barrel cleaning kit, and a starter pack of three malted whiskey essences. The barrel you will receive is expertly charred on the interior, providing the classic "oak barrel aged" flavor to your home whiskey distilling experience.
This make-your-own-Irish-Whiskey gift package will be a favorite gift for the liquor enthusiast. Helping them (or you!) jump into the grand tradition of home distillery, each one of our oak barrels has its own distinct flavor profile. This is because of the normal, natural variations which occur in each oak tree used to make the staves, as well as the individuality of the charring process, regional weather and climate fluctuations, the size (and therefore surface area) of the barrel, and so on.
Add the bold and unique flavors of your very own brand of home-distilled malted whiskey to this timeless and international tradition with our Irish Whiskey Barrel Connoisseur Kit! The kit contains everything you need (except for the alcohol) to make three batches of Irish Whiskey, and you can always get refills!
