  • SAVE EVEN MORE ON MULTI BARREL ORDERSIn most cases it cost the same or just a little more to ship 2  barrels as it does .              The more your order the lower the per barrel shipping rate.
  • We could ad the shipping cost to the barrel and call it "FREE SHIPPING" like other companies do, BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY MORE! When was the last time you got something for nothing? 
  • We could ad shipping to the price of the barrel and call it "shipping included" like others do BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY MORE!

A barrel going to Portland OR cost more to ship than one going to Nashville TN.
  • One size does not fit all when it comes to shipping. Why should you have to pay more?                                                                                      SAVE EVEN MORE WHEN YOU ORDER 2 OR MORE

Barrel WareouseWHEN WILL YOUR ORDER SHIP?                      WE DON'T TAKE RUSH ORDERS, PLEASE DON'T ASK    
If you pay by check, order ships after the check clears (3
Business days for checks to clear). Full size barrels paid for by credit card typically ship within 3 days of being placed.  Cedar Kegs, Tubs, and Buckets can take 2  weeks to ship.  Display Barrels ship within 2 weeks.   
 For New Barrels, Select Barrels, & Barrel Halves, you may have to wait a few days longer to receive your order than with the other grades because we ship only freshly emptied Select Bourbon barrels, and just made New Bourbon Barrels.
Barrel Halves Half barrels may take a few extra days to ship. Barrel halves are cut to order.. We don't stock large amounts, so you can have freshly cut halves. We take the time to put screws in the hoops to keep them secure. Your halves will be stacked and wrapped 2 together, so if you order 10 it will show up as 5 pieces,  20 would show as 10 pieces. Halves may also be shipped on pallets. Our trucking company has a free lift gate service.
Delivery  We have arranged for NO ADDITIONAL RESIDENTIAL DELIVERY FEE with R&L Carriers, you pay regular delivery fee even to a residential address.  **If you are in New York City there is an additional $90.00 added to the delivery fee.  In most cases orders will be delivered to your home or business. If you live on a road that is inaccessible to our trucks the order will be delivered as close as possible. If you live in a high rise building the order will be delivered to the main entrance or service entrance.

 It is important that we have your correct email address to send you the tracking information. PLEASE INCLUDE A CONTACT PHONE NUMBER , YOUR ORDER CANNOT BE DELIVERED WITHOUT YOUR PHONE NUMBER!

Will they hold liquids? These barrels are made to hold liquids. Our whiskey barrels have held valuable Kentucky Bourbon whiskey for many years. Many of our customers have used them successfully for home brewing and wine making, others use them as rain barrels or for water gardens. We use them ourselves as rain barrels.  If the barrel has dried out you will have to rehydrate the barrel for it to be water tight. To do this wet it down and put water inside. As the wood soaks up water it will swell and seal.  You will have to tap the hoops down to tighten up the barrel if you allow it to dry out. If you want to use them for brewing or wine making we recommend the SELECT or NEW  barrel. The same goes for our Wine Barrels.   Because we can't control shipping or weather conditions, how barrels are treated after they leave us, or how long they are allowed to sit, WE CANNOT GUARANTEED THEM TO HOLD  LIQUIDS... ONLY NEW BOURBON OR WINE BARRELS ARE GUARANTEED.
Each barrel is shipped with a bung in the bung hole.   You may have to tap the bung in to tighten it up.  We do have new and used bungs for sale.
self taping screw in hoop*Using them for decoration, displays, storage or trash containers  (Click here to learn more)  Barrels have other uses besides holding liquids. If you use the barrels for decoration, as a trash  receptacle or for storage, The barrel will dry out. As the barrel dries out the wood will shrink and the bottom hoops may drop off. In order to prevent this we recommend you drive a self drilling screw into each side of the hoops. We do this to the half barrel planters. Here you see a picture of a self drilling screw in the barrel hoop. This holds the hoop in place. We use a Self Drilling Pan Phillips 8-18 x 3/4. You can get them from any hardware store or home center. They go in very easy using a regular drill with a phillips driver bit.
 It is better to use screws than nails. Using screws allows you to tighten the hoops up if needed, you can't do this if they are nailed in.  We can secure the hoops for you for $10.00 per barrel.
What do they look like? Our genuine white oak Kentucky whiskey barrels look GREAT! (they may need a little cleaning up, they come straight from our distillery warehouses to you). The many years spent in century old warehouses where they react to the change in seasons we experience here in Kentucky makes for a very beautiful patina on our vintage barrels. Our VINTAGE barrels may have been reused to make other Kentucky whiskies or brandy. Our new and used barrels are bought by motion picture studios, prop departments, and parks. You've seen our barrels in movies, TV programs, the local amusement park, pub, restaurant, and golf course. Some Vintage barrels may have a superficial crack in a stave. this does not affect the barrel in any way (a stave is the oak slats that makeup the body of the barrel). Our SELECT barrels have been used only once to make Bourbon, however they will not look like new barrels, they have been in the warehouse for from 4 to 18 years. All whiskey barrels are charred on the inside.  If you want the new looking barrels we suggest you buy our NEW barrelsNOTE: The barrels you receive may not look exactly like the barrels pictured on our links. Pictures are representative of the barrel grades, no two barrels will look exactly alike.   New Bourbon barrels can be ordered WITHOUT the charring.     NOTE: Our new and used Wine Barrels and Wine Barrel Staves are not charred on the inside, they are lightly toasted.
Barrel Finish   Our barrels are shipped just as they are made, and that is without  a finish. Because they are used to age the best whiskey in the world they have to be all natural.  Our customers use the barrels for many different things. Some make furniture and put finishes on the barrels. Because there are so many different types of stains and finishes available we cannot suggest or recommend one over another. Consult your local lumber yard or home center, they may be able to recommend a finish for you. Finish as you would any natural wood
Is there an odor?  These white oak barrels have held Kentucky Bourbon for many years. With the change of seasons the whiskey works itself in and out of the oak giving it its unique flavor and color. Some of our barrels have been reused to make other whiskies or brandy. So our used barrels do have an odor. Here in Kentucky the wonderful Bourbon odor is called "the angles share". We believe it is a very pleasant order and is one of the perks of working with these great barrels. To lessen the odor you can rinse the barrels with hot water. The odor will go away eventually. If you don't want the odor we suggest you order the NEW barrels.
