Kelvin Cooperage has been family run since it was founded in 1963. Having completed his five-year apprenticeship in the craft of coopering, Ed McLaughlin started his own cooperage on the banks of the River Kelvin in Glasgow. Kelvin has served the major distilleries in Scotland, Ireland, and worldwide continuously since its formation.
To best meet our clients needs, we constantly strive to obtain the best oak and utilize the most current machinery while remaining true to time-tested traditional cooperage techniques. Our dedication to maintaining the highest level of quality and service is evident in the care taken at every step of the coopering process to ensure that every winemaker receives a highly crafted, subtly flavored, American oak wine barrel at an exceptional value.
