Used barrels may have cracked staves from their previous use. This is completely normal in a used barrel and does not compromise the integrity of the barrel. When they swell from the liquid being in them, they will form small cracks. If you prefer a barrel with no cracks, please check out our new barrels.


Availability of used whiskey barrels in the 5 gallon size can be touch and go.  They are generally popular and sell out quickly.

As of this posting these are in stock and on sale for $99.  That’s a $40.99 savings.  Sales on these are rare.  This is a great deal considering how tough these are to find.  I would suggest getting on this sooner rather than later, if you’re interested.  Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

From William’s Brewing: “Have you ever wanted to make a true bourbon barrel stout, or an oak aged barleywine? We now have 5 gallon American Oak bourbon barrels from Reservoir Distilling in Virginia. These are once used barrels which have stored Reservoir’s premium craft bourbon for at least 2 years before being drained on December 3rd. These impart a deep whisky/bourbon-oak flavor and are perfect for aging your strong ales, and also ideal for sour ales. Barrels are crafted in the USA from oak grown in Virginia. A wood stand is optional. 13.5″ wide, 17.5″ long, 17.5″ tall with optional stand. Very limited supply.”

As of this posting, William’s Brewing has a limited quantity of these in stock and on sale for $119.99.  Although the product page doesn’t say such, shipping is also currently free (guessing addresses in the contiguous US).  Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

15% Off Charred American Oak Barrels – 1 to 5 Liter Oak Barrels – Dual Purpose

1 to 5 liter American Oak Barrels via William’s Brewing.

About: “When you distill a spirit, it invariably comes out clear as water. Put the clear spirit in contact with charred American Oak, and it turns amber and mellow over time with toasted wood vanilla-like richness. Want to speed up the aging process? Our new American Oak Barrels are charred on the inside for Whiskey, Bourbon, Tequilla, Rum, and Brandy aging. The large wood surface contact area per ounce compared with commercial 53 gallon barrels means this will age spirits much quicker than larger barrels. Handmade in Mexico following centuries old cooperage methods; the valve is wood and sealed with leather, and the top plug is wood and sealed with a wrap of leather. No plastic, glue, or rubber are used in construction.”

Dual purpose: Once you mature your whiskey you know have a used whiskey barrel you can use to age a barrel stout or other homebrew.

As of this posting, William’s Brewing has the entire lineup marked down 15%.  No coupon code is required. Note: discount will be reflected when you add qualifying items to your cart.  Promotions can change quickly, check William’s Brewing for current availability.
