Our 3 liter black-hooped barrels are the popular and give a good balance between a 2 Liter and a big 5 Liter barrel.
Most people order them because they feel that a 3 Liter Oak Barrel(.78 Gallons) is a good size. It’s obviously a bit bigger then then a 2 Liter Barrel but its still manageable and not to big to handle like a 5 Liter would be. It’s just big enough where you can still use name brand store bought liquors without breaking the bank. Here is why a 3 Liter Oak Barrel might be a good fit:
- This fits FOUR standard bottles of Whiskey, Rum, Tequila or Wine bottles (750ml) and will fill up the barrel almost perfectly with maybe 3-5 ounces -/+. When your filling it to 95% using those 4 bottles its going to give you ample opportunity to sample your liquor throughout the aging process.
- It is a is only slightly more then a 2 Liter Oak Barrel yet has 50% more capacity. This means you can age more alcohol at a lower price per ounce which equals savings.
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.
