Our vanilla barrels began their life as bourbon barrels, usually ex-Jim Beam, ex-Maker’s Mark, or ex-Buffalo Trace American Oak barrels. From there, the barrels went on to age vanilla, where the vanilla extract was commercially produced and privately labeled under various brands. The combination of whiskey and vanilla extract flavor in these ex-bourbon vanilla barrels create a unique profile great for aging stouts and porters.
Interested in other vanilla products? We also offer Cinnamon Whiskey Vanilla Ex-Bourbon Barrels that will add an even more unique twist to the aging process.
All barrels are backed by our Barrel Quality Guarantee. This ensures you will receive good, fresh, wet, leak and “bug” free 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.
