Old Dog Barrels
Mini Aging Barrels that allow you to Age or Blend your Spirits at home.
Custom Laser Engraving is included !
Old Dog Barrels
are Fully Functional, American White Oak, Aging Barrels, or Finishing Barrels.
The Barrels are charred on the inside; Level 4 char, or "alligator" char.
Why? Because aging softens the "burn" of that ethanol sting you feel and taste with average liquor, while smoothing out flavors and adding more pleasant ones.

.... get it?!?! Let's get together!
-- We can schedule a location and time to taste spirits, learn the basics and have an unforgettable night!
-- We can schedule a time and date to have a video conference. I will get you the samples (or you), you will need glasses, water, some snacks and coffee grounds. Why? Let's have a tasting event and find out!
How many people do you/we need?
-- Extrovert? Up to 12, or 6 couples -- too many people can be difficult to manage.
-- Introvert? Just you and I can have a virtual tasting online with just you and I, or you with a friend, or you with your pet.
-- This is an absolute great way to put your phone away for some time and be part of a session where you are going to learn and escape. I can make the event as slow or as silly you would like.
