Bangers and Mash

It’s no secret I enjoy a Bourbon and ginger, but I often find myself only using a portion of a can of Ginger Ale and needing something to cover the can until I return to pour another drink. At one time we had these inexpensive plastic tops for cans, but somewhere along the way we ditched them.

Bourbon Barrels

Very cool!

Bourbon & Oak

We now have bourbon barrels for sale in our online store.

Our American Oak aging barrels are more than decorative barrels, although they do make a magnificent piece for your bar, they are something more entirely. These little whiskey barrels as some may refer to them will smooth, mellow and enhance your favorite whiskey, rum, and tequila in just a few weeks because of their small size. Small liquor barrels have much more surface area compared to their volume so you achieve years of aging in a very short time.

Made by Deep South Barrels and available for a special rate on our site.

Available in 1L, 2L, and 3L sizes.
