The Barrel Aging Kit is the perfect gift idea for anyone who loves to knock back a shot of whiskey. This real oak barrel kit includes everything you need to make and age your own whiskey, including 3 excellent varieties of whiskey essence so you can begin to sample the broad spectrum of taste, kick, and character within the whiskey 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 whiskey essence. Every barrel is charred to perfection on the inside, which provides the classic "oak barrel aged" flavor to your home distilling experience.

This make-your-own-whiskey gift package is a stellar gift idea for the liquor enthusiast. Helping you jump into the grand tradition of home distillery, each one of our oak whiskey barrels has its own distinct flavor profile. This is because of natural variations in each oak tree used to make the staves, 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 unique flavors of your very own brand of home-distilled whiskey to this American tradition with our Whiskey Barrel Connoisseur Kit! The kit contains everything you need (except the alcohol) to make three batches of whiskey, and you can always get refills!

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