Maple syrup rests in these 53-gallon ex-Bourbon American Oak barrels (usually Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, or Buffalo Trace) while it ages to taste until it reaches peak flavor. These maple syrup barrels hold syrup sourced from farms throughout northern Maine, Vermont and Canada. The aging process for syrup is usually more based on flavor progression instead of time, but it’s generally under twelve months. Our maple syrup barrels ship with an additional 500 mL of high-proof neutral spirit and are purged with inert gas to prevent spoilage. Interested in other maple syrup barrels?

We carefully check each order to ensure that it meets your expectations exactly. However, we advise you to inspect your barrels on delivery and to inform us of any problem(s) that you may observe. The physical condition of the barrels must be verified on delivery. Customers have five business days in which to report any issue with their barrels.
