Our 2 liter black-hooped barrels are the most popular barrels people order.
Most people order them because they feel that a 2 Liter Oak Barrel(.52 Gallons) is a good size. It’s not too big, where you feel overwhelmed and have to go out and buy copious amounts of alcohol, and it’s not too small where it feels dainty. For most of us, 2 Liters is just right. Here is why:
- This fits TWO and a HALF standard bottles of Whiskey, Rum or Tequila (750ml) and will fill up the barrel with a little extra(250ml).Now best practice is to make sure the barrel is 75-95% full as this ensures the barrel stays thoroughly wet on the inside This means there will be that extra 250ml that will not be aged and can offer a great comparison of flavors between your freshly aged batch and the original product you put in these.
- It is a very economical way to start aging your alcohol. It’s TWICE the size of a 1 Liter barrel without being twice the cost. Minimal increase in price from a 1 Liter barrel.
The black hoops on our oak barrels give them a classic look. Maybe because it’s an iconic staple of pirate ships and rum (thanks Captain Jack Sparrow) or it could also be because you simply like how the black hoops stand out against the grain of the wood and make it show.
