9L American Oak Barrel, Spirit / Port Barrel - Black Hoop

Product Description

9L American Oak Barrel, Spirit / Port Barrel - Black Hoop

Made from American Oak

Available in:
2L, 4.5L, 6L, 9L, 12L, 16L, 25L

American Oak Barrel with solid brass tap, shaved

Take a step back in time, and bring traditional class to your bar with our Cooper barrels. Our barrels will not only bring an authentic look to your bar, but you will oversee the transformation of your drinks, producing beautifully crafted ports and spirits using the traditional tools of maturation. Our cooper barrels made in the United States of America made of only the best American oak using traditional techniques and tools.
American Oak gives us a richness and character we all strive for in our fortified wines and spirits. The barrels are perfect for not only storage of your drinks but will speed the maturation process, producing mellow complex flavours and notes.

Perfect for fortified wines - Port, Sherry, Muscat.
Perfect for high quality spirits – Whisky & Bourbons

Throughout the process of aging, the spirit and fortified wines “breathes” within the oak barrel, expanding and sealing the oak barrel in the summer as well as contracting during the cold months. Its the colour as well as taste that are critical and are transferred to the spirit and fortified wines throughout this process in the oak barrel, but the summer time is the most crucial time, as it is at this time where majority of the aging takes place and the more flavour is taken from the oak.


Package Includes
  • 9L American Oak Barrel, Spirit / Port Barrel - Black Hoop
    • Solid Brass Tap
    • American Oak Barrel
    • Barrel Stand
    • Barrel Bung
    • Instructions

Please be aware of cheaper barrels on the market, they are of lower quality.

Thing to be aware of

  • Prior use - Once it has been used for fortified wines, it can not be used for spirits
  • Poor quality timbers
    (different types of oaks and timbers change the flavours considerably, spirits more so than fortified wines are sensitive to the oak notes)
  • Wooden taps
    (Wooden taps may look nice, but leak, rot and make a very big sticky mess)
  • Poorly constructed barrels
    (We have seen alot of poor quality barrels come out of China. They simply do not take up and expand, again making a very big mess with alot
  • effort wasted.)
Product Support

We go to extra lengths to make sure that you are comfortable with your new product. We are contactable at our Mornington showroom, via Phone and via email.


Port Blend Recipes:

Dry, Fairly Alchoholic Recipe Style

  • Three and a half bottles of Tawny Port
  • One bottle of Fino Sherry (Very Dry)
  • One bottle of Brandy (375ml)

Sweeter Less Alcoholic Recipe Style

  • Four bottles of Tawny Port
  • Half a bottle of Fino Sherry (very Dry)
  • One Bottle of Brandy (175ml)

We have customers that blend their ports with southern comfort. Its all very personal, crafting your own drinks is what really makes this fun.

Blends can be sized up or down depending on the tastes and the volume of the barrel, the barrel does not have to be full.

The blends will take time to "merry in" and provide a smooth drinking port or spirit. Some evaporation of the contents should be encouraged, as this hastens the "marrying in"

You should also try other blends such as specialised liquors, spirits and other suitable liquors

Perperation Instructions:

  1. Fill with warm water (The barrel has been empty since manufacture and the oak could have dried)
  2. Keep refilling with water until the oak barrel has 'taken up' and stopped leaking. This can take up to two days, water will beed as it swells the wood and fills the pours
  3. When the barrel has taken up, empty water and let drain completely

Port Blending Preperations:

  1. Pour into a quarter of a bottle of Old Tawwny Port, roll it around several times and then empty it out
  2. Fill it with the port you have selected or blended to be kept in the barrel
  3. If the barrel still leaks empty the fortified wine/port out, refill it with water and leave until it stops (in most instances this is unnecessary)
  4. Remember that patience is necessary at this stage, and is the key to successfully preparing the barrel
  5. Never immerse the barrel in water as this will turn it black and damage the barrel

Spirit Blending Preperations:

  1. Pour into a quarter of a bottle of Whiskey, roll it around several times and then empty it out
  2. Fill it with the spirit you have selected or blended to be kept in the barrel
  3. If the barrel still leaks empty the spirit out, refill it with water and leave until it stops (in most instances this is unnecessary)
  4. Remember that patience is necessary at this stage, and is the key to successfully perparing the barrel
  5. Never immerse the barrel in water as this will turn it black and damage the barrel
