Top 3 Oak Barrel Gift Ideas

From personalized oak barrels to an at-home wine-making kit, this is the perfect gift for the wine, whiskey, or craft beer enthusiast in your life.

When wine, whiskey, or other spirits interact with the charred oak wood interior of the barrel, the structure of the liquid changes, and the decay process slowed. Though this process works at different rates for different drinks, the end result is a rich, enhanced flavour.

It can be a challenge to buy gifts for your friends and family that are both meaningful and distinctive, but crafting gifts with meaning is what we do best at Urban Barrel.

Trying to pick the right gift can be stressful, especially if you’re in a time crunch. That’s why we’ve put together our top 3 best barrel gift ideas to help you find something for everyone.

Personalized Oak Ageing Barrel

While whiskey is one of the most popular drinks to age in oak barrels, many connoisseurs across the globe also age bourbon, scotch, wine, and beer.

The subtle vanilla aroma and nuanced toastiness of the oak enhance the already present fruit flavours and smell. With an authentic oak ageing barrel, you can take a substandard whiskey and turn it into something you’d be proud to serve.

Available in 1L, 2L, 3L, and 5L sizes, our oak barrels are handcrafted from American white oak and feature a medium char. Each barrel is equipped with a stand, bung, spigot, and handling directions to help you get started on ageing your perfect blend. 

To make your gift even more special, personalize your barrel by engraving the front or back with your own design.
