Inspiration: The inspiration for our DIY whiskey barrel came from a desire to give everyone a chance to age their own premium spirits in an actual charred, white oak barrel. The barrel is designed to turn a pint of clear neutral spirit into a delicious aged whiskey in little more than a week or two.

Funding: Our funding is going to be used to cover production costs. This will include sourcing the best quality white oak we can find, routing the staves and end caps, procuring clamps and cork, charring the white oak, and all other production and shipping related costs.

Production Schedule: We've already started on our first batch of kits and they'll be ready to ship for the early-bird pledges in time for Christmas. Additional kits will be produced within 3-4 weeks after the close of this Kickstarter project giving us an expected delivery date of mid-February.

Risks and challenges

As with any new project, unforeseen obstacles abound. However, we have 7 years of product manufacturing and online fulfillment experience. We have been selling whiskey spice kits for 2 years and copper moonshine still kits for 7 years. We plan on using our prior experience to make this project a success. Please help us out by picking a reward and donating to our campaign.
