The Barrel Mill offers premium 5, 10, 15, 30 and 53 gallon barrels and oak infusion spirals to distilled and craft spirits makers. The Barrel Mill starts with the highest quality American White Oak staves – which are sustainably sourced and air dried up to two years. We then individually mold, fire bend, toast and char to your specifications. Tongue and groove handcrafted heads are also charred, then sealed with organic beeswax. And finally, each barrel is hand tested with high temperature, pressurized filtered water to ensure there are no leaks. Nothing is left to chance. And nothing short of perfection comes your way to hold your distilled spirits.
For my spirits, there’s simply no alternative. ~ Paul Hletko, Founder & Distiller Few Spirit, Former President of ACSA
Our family has been in the lumber business for over 100 years. In 2004 an opportunity arose to buy a cooperage that had gone out of business. (Oh my how times have changed.) Through our knowledge of wood, extensive investments in new machinery and technology, we have built a brand that represents quality-aging products for the beverage industry and custom wood displays for marketing all sorts of products.
Barrels – American White Oak, Quercus Alba
All of our barrels are handmade and expertly charred. The only things standard about our barrels is the quality and our five sizes. Everything else is customized to your distillery’s needs.
- Tight-Grained Premium Oak
- Galvanized hoops
- Full 1 inch thick staves
- Organic (Kosher) Beeswax Seal
Toast Levels – Charred to Perfection
Based on the needs of your distillery, we can achieve subtly varying flavors and aromas such as sweet caramel, smoke, spice, coffee, chocolate and vanilla.
#3 Char – Our standard, a #3 “Alligator” char provides the most vanillins. Caramel and toffee flavors are also present that work well for Bourbons and provide a beautiful dark amber color.
#4 Char – Our second most popular, a #4 char adds smoke, coffee and chocolate flavors and a darker color – working wonderfully for Rye Whiskeys.
Custom Char – Upon request, we will work with you to determine which char level – #2 or #5 – will help you achieve your desired flavor profile.
