With a personalized whiskey barrel, every pour is extra-special. The handcrafted white oak barrel has a flavor-enhancing medium char and is your starting point for aging spirits. Just combine grain alcohol or vodka with Thousand Oaks Barrel’s own signature flavor essence, like Kentucky bourbon, Irish whiskey, or spiced rum, and then age away.
Instructions: To start, cure your barrel then pour grain alcohol or neutral flavored vodka into the vessel and add optional essence flavor. Shake to incorporate the ingredients. Taste your spirits weekly and once aged to your taste, start drinking or move it to a glass bottle to stop the aging process. See guide for full instructions

Maker Bryan Weisberg of Thousand Oaks Barrel liked to play with alcohol flavors, and he turned to aging as a way to better control the taste and quality of spirits—and as a more accessible way for other folks to try their hand at home distilling.
The foundation of these spirit-aging kits is, of course, the beautiful handcrafted barrels. Each is made with American white oak with a flavor-enhancing medium char and staves that have been air dried for two years. Combine a flavor essence, like Irish whiskey, Kentucky bourbon, or spiced rum with grain alcohol or vodka in the barrel and let the aging begin. These home-friendly barrels speed up the aging process so you can get to a tasty pour faster. Add a personalization to make for a statement gift that will stand out on any home bar.
