“Enhancing the Beer, Tequila, Whiskey and Wine of the World one White Oak Barrel at a time” 

This listing is for three (3) new 2 liter / .52 U.S. gallon American white oak barrels to age, mature, decanter, carafe, or flask  liquor, wine or beer, there are other listings for one  another for two, four,  and six 2 liter barrels. 

This 2 liter / .52 ½  gallon barrel is 6 inches diameter in the middle, and 5 inches diameter on the ends and 7 ¼ inches long and weighs about .865 kilograms / 1.9 pounds. The area of the drawing is about 4 inches diameter but the spigot is in the bottom of that area.

My barrels are made in Mexico with American white oak for the tequila trade but they work for all other types of spirits which lend themselves to aging in white oak. I live in Mexico and they are shipped from Mexico.

Almost all of the mini barrels being sold in the USA, regardless of shipping location or claims of being made in the USA are made in Mexico. You will see barrels with BRASS, GALVANIZED STEEL and BLACK METAL HOOPS Read Why I Don’t Sell Them Anymore.

About Barrels

Read a guide about "The Origins of a Wood Barrel"

Read a guide authored by eBay "Oak Cask Buying"

Read a guide authored by eBay "How to Make Your Own Wine"

I have these barrels in several sizes with or without outside coating and the char of your choice, see them all at American White Oak Barrels

The stand, spigot and bung are all included. They are charred on the inside with a heavy char using an open fire of white oak chips but you may order the charring on your choice, please allow extra shop time for special orders.

Smaller barrels provide each liter of spirits with a great deal more oak character than a larger barrel due to the ratio of surface area to wine volume. Because of this the same degree of flavor change may be observed in a far shorter period of time, perhaps only a few weeks. Spirits in a small barrel requires constant monitoring to ensure it does not become over oaked.

If you are new to white oak barrels you may want to buy the Care and Storage Instructions for $1.99, with them you will better understand what you’re getting into when you take the challenge of owning your own barrel however when you buy a barrel the care and storage instructions are included and sent by email with the tracking number and if you get artwork a picture of your barrel/s.

Why We Apply A Finish Coat

Completed barrels are tested with water, they leak a little until the wood swells against the metal hoops, leaking water with charring from inside stains the outside of the wood; to prevent the staining we apply a coat of lacquer. The 6 gallon barrels are made without outside coating but any barrel can be special ordered without lacquer. Just before the barrels are shipped the water is poured out, when received they need to be filled with water to be sure they are still watertight, they may leak a little until the wood is re-hydrated and swells against the metal hoops and will stain the wood if not coated. We have a deep flowing well with water we can drink from the tap which we use to hydrate the barrels. It is true that wine or liquor stored for extended periods in un-coated barrels which have been used a lot and don't impart much color and flavor anymore and is stored in the proper temperature and humidity that oxidation can take place through the pores of the wood and the ingredients may become denser and have a more intense flavor but the new mini barrels impart so much color and flavor so quickly that the ingredients cannot be left inside long enough for oxidation to take place, there would be so much flavor from the oak that it would ruin the taste, at least not until the barrel has been used several times and there isn't much color and flavor left, usually by that time the coat of lacquer has worn off. The lacquer will not harm the ingredients; neither will it come off in the liquor.

Artwork

The artwork / engraving can be anything you want but cost extra. You can attach a file to the eBay email system the design you want burned onto your barrel to get a price, we prefer a JPEG file but have been able to work with just about anything. I’m not allowed to add my email address to the item description. The area of the drawing is about 4 inches diameter but the spigot is in the bottom of that area. To see my latest artwork in a Windows Live photo album go to American White Oak Barrels

Shipping / Postage

I have never lost a barrel in shipping but there’s a great deal of effort shipping from Mexico, I have to take the packages to their shipping / mailing location several miles away and have the contents inspected.

Barrels are delivered overland free to the Continental United States from Guadalajara, Mexico with tracking number.

To Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or Other Island US Territories they go by airmail with tracking number and there is a small fee.

To Canada and the rest of the world the barrels go by airmail with tracking number and there is a shipping fee.

Shop Time

Please allow five to seven working days shop time, we make barrels everyday but occasionally we do not have all sizes in stock and since it's a long trip to the post office I only go a few times a week. The overland shipping leaves Guadalajara one day a week. Most of the time we have barrels in stock and are able to do the artwork and ship them within 5 days.

Return Policy

For any reason within 30 days you may return unused barrels, I have never had a barrel returned; returned barrels must be cared for as per the care and storage instructions sent with your tracking number.

Useful Information

I have been using barrels like these since 2002 to age tequila, rum and wine. In a few months I am able to make white tequila, rum and whiskey taste like the expensive 7 and 12 year old brands. On their second and subsequent orders wine and beer makers tell me they love the results they are getting from these barrels. I have started a discussion group so my customers can ask questions and share their experiences with the white oak barrels; it is open to the public, join us at American White Oak Barrels

Any kind of good quality liquor, wine or beer will be made better in these barrels. The more time it's inside a barrel, the darker the color and flavor changes; from herbal tones, vanilla, cinnamon, the flavor of the wood, nuts like walnut, hazelnut, etc.

Barrel Cleaning

If you're using the barrel for alcohol that pretty much cleans it. According to the Department of Fruit Science, South-west Missouri State University, Research Campus, Mountain Grove, MO 65711; a hot water treatment (85°C to 88°C water for 20 minutes) worked better than four other barrel sanitizing treatments.
