The Rum Barrel Aging Kit is the perfect gift idea for your friend who is the essence of a sea-breeze-loving island spirit. Our real oak barrel kit includes everything they will need to make and barrel-age 3 distinctly flavored batches of authentic and delicious rum.

Each Barrel Connoisseur Kit includes an attractive premium wrought iron stand, an authentic oak 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 sprightly Rum essences. The barrel you will receive is charred to perfection on the inside, which provides the classic "oak barrel aged" flavor to your home distilling experience.

This make-your-own-Rum gift package will be a long-lasting gift for the liquor enthusiast. Helping 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 forth.

Add the bold and unique flavors of your very own brand of home-distilled Rum to this timeless and international tradition with our Rum Barrel Connoisseur Kit! The kit contains everything you need (except for the alcohol) to make three batches of Rum, and you can always get refills!

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