This is popular amongst spare time wine makers and Micro Breweries.

Our barrels are manufactured by our in-house Standards (KKÜ 07-1959), using the highest quality oak harvested in the Zemplen Hills in Hungary. 
Prior to the Russian Revolution , Quercus petraea oak especially from Hungary was the most highly sought after wood for French winemaking. The trees in the Hungarian Zemplén Mountains grow slower in the volcanic soil and smaller, creating fine tight grain which sequentially lends itself to a very delicate extraction. The staves, which are first split (not sawn) from blocks prior to sawing are carefully air dried for at least 24 months.  

Sanded. The barrels, depending on its size, are held together with 6-8 iron hoops which are fire- galvanized. Smaller than 2 mms surface eye knot in diameter are allowed.
we offer a variety of different levels of toasting (light to heavy)
Silicone plugs are placed into bungs, then plastic wrapped to help to prevent shipping damage.
