To totally empty the cask you simply pick it up with the bung removed, turn it over bung hole down and the open the valve. The cask will completely empty.I like them and if I had the space, I'd buy one.
Only thing is from my POV is, how easy is it to get the last 20% out? Assuming you have to tip it?
Reply 2. Just thinking possibly stupidly but for people who have no interest in Whiskey I am sure you could use the barrel for some device that changes the face of the clock colour or maybe even players faces. I am probably rumbling on.Do you mean put a clock face on the barrel end?
Cheers flootbon. Oak is porous. Any stain or dye you apply could contaminate the contents of the cask.
If the cask is for display only the staining and or vanishing is definitely an option.
The casks hold 1.4 Litres (2 bottles).
There is no coating inside the barrel. The inside of the cask is lightly charred in exactly the same way as full size barrels. There is no glue, sealant, resin. The are made from ex Macallan casks. Just oak and stainless steel.
Probably a silly question, are you able to ship to Perth Australia by any chance?I've recently started a business making 1.4L whisky barrels. They are made from ex whisky casks. They are aimed at the 2m whisky tourists who visit whisky distilleries each year. However, I was prompted by a thread on here which asked what products you would like to see in the post Fatso Rangers shop. I made some prototype Rangers barrels. I also made some clocks (also in solid oak)
I've been in contact with Scott Morrison (head of commercial partnerships) at the club. He feels that the Rangers support would be interested in Rangers branded wee whisky barrels.
It would help if you were to give me some feedback on the wee barrels (and clocks).
The wee barrels are perfectly functional in that they will further mature any spirit you put in the cask. It needn't be whisky. They will work with bourbon, vodka, rum, gin. Any spirit really.
I displayed the prototypes recently at the memorabilia day at the Louden (Thank you Robert).
As for price, I would have get some agreement with the club before I know what this would be at the shop.
So, whadya think?
Yes. I've sent some to the US. I'd be delighted to ship them down under.Probably a silly question, are you able to ship to Perth Australia by any chance?
Can I get back to you later today? My IT guru won't be until this afternoon
I'll message you.
