5 Gallon French Oak Barrel

Current stock: 0

(BL111) "You'll never find a nicer barrel". Tonnelleries Allary is a world known French producer of oak barrels. They supply some of the leading wineries in the Bordeaux and Cognac regions of France. Their hand-crafted barrels are known the world over for their superior quality and velvety aging characteristics.

WHAT MAKES THESE BARRELS SO SPECIAL?
Only hand-selected, Limousine Oak is used, a wood found in the central forests of France. Limousine Oak is known for its superior, sweet flavor and is in high demand among the French cooperages. The Oak is split, cross-stacked and air-dried for a minimum of 36 months. The wood is then crafted into barrels in the classic French tradition. Staves are hand planed, never sawed. This reduces the release of bitter tannins into the wine from open wood grains. Also, the finished barrel is medium toasted on the inside over an oak wood flame which will help the wine to mature at a faster pace. The result is a barrel with the craftsmanship and quality that can truly raise your wines to higher level of finesse.

Q Liz (Monroe, LA)
I would like to know if your 5-gal Barrel has a spigot?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
Our barrels do not come with spigots. Although, we do sell them separately. However, we do not recommend putting a spigot in a wine barrel because it causes them to leak.

Q Adan (Gambell, AK)
What size of bung fits your 5 gallon barrel? And what are the dimensions of the barrel?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
Our 1 3/8 softwood bung will fit this wine barrel. The dimensions of the barrel are 12 inches in diameter and 20 inches tall.
