Description

Ash barrels are quite different compared to oak barrels, as they do not impart any flavor or character to the liquid you fill them with. Primarily used as storage vessels for the purpose of micro-oxygenation. For distilling purposes, this will help smooth out the spirit as it sits in the barrel. Whereas oak barrels might only be used a couple times before they're swapped out, an ash barrel can be used over and over again if kept in good condition.
 
These new Hungarian ash barrels are made by renowned cooper, Balazs Nagy.
