Oak Barrels
We have oak barrels at Medieval Collectibles. Why? Because we like authentic experiences, and there is no experience more authentic to a pirate or a medieval re-enactor then sipping their very-own, personally aged alcoholic spirits. After all, should not something you aged personally be the tastiest spirit of them all? For your spirit-aging endeavors, we offer a number of oak barrels that will accomplish the task quite nicely. We have a plethora of plain barrels, which come in sizes that hold either 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 liters of fluid and offer variations in the metal bands around the barrel, which come in black steel, steel, and brass.
Bootleg Kits
Perhaps if you are a little less adventurous and less keen on the task of assembling your own supplies needed in order to age your own spirits, you can invest, instead, in one of our own bootleg kits. We have got several different bootleg kits available, all of which include almost all the supplies you will need in order to age your very own spirits. Each bootleg kit includes a charred oak barrel made from American white oak, a simple wooden stand, a bung, and a wooden spigot, as well as bottles of flavored essence, a barrel cleaning kit, one funnel, and a set of easy-to-follow instructions.
Mugs and Canteens
For the busy brew master who is always on the go, there is no greater item then a portable oak barrel. But where, oh where, could any intrepid individual find an oak barrel that that is both effective and portable? Why, right here at Medieval Collectibles, of course! In addition to our effective and tasteful oak barrels and bootleg kits, we also offer a number of mugs and canteens, which you will find are perfect for enjoying your own tasty brews as well as for transporting your ultra-tasty aged spirits to a number of fine imbibers. Our intriguing selection of canteen barrels are hand-crafted from American white oak and feature a medium toast; they hold approximately 1 liter of liquid and are perfect for aging and transporting any of your spirits of choice.
Essence
When you are flavoring and aging your own spirits and liquors, the flavoring essence is very important. After all, if you do not have any essence, you are really just letting neutral spirits sit around and gain age but likely not taste. So at Medieval Collectibles, we offer a wide assortment of delectable essences which are perfect for use in any of your spirit-aging endeavors. If, perhaps, you consider yourself an experienced brew master, these essences are fantastic for use in any oak barrels you already possess especially if you acquired your oak barrels from us! And if you are new to the wide world of personally aged spirits and liquors, then that is ok: these essences are still great for experimenting and figuring out just which flavor you prefer.
Barrel Stands
Each of our oak barrels comes with a simple stand, so you might be wondering why we would even offer any other stands. The answer is fairly simple: because sometimes, while the basic variety works, not everyone is looking for something that just works. Sometimes, people with discerning taste want something that speaks to them, something that has character. And for that reason, we offer a few variations on our barrel stands. We feature barrel stands that are made for each of our specific sizes of oak barrels, and we also feature them in different materials. Our wooden barrel stands are great for adding a new look an oak barrel while still preserving the all-wood appearance.
Cleaning and Maintenance
If you own an oak barrel, and more importantly, if you are using it to flavor and age your own spirits, then you need the items from our cleaning and maintenance section: its just a simple fact. If you are aging spirits, eventually, you will need to clean your barrel especially if you are using one oak barrel to age multiple flavors. You would not want to compromise any of your brews, would you? Of course not! And with our total care kits, cleaning and caring for your oak barrel is a breeze - a cool, refreshing breeze that prolongs the life of your oak barrel and ensures that your spirits are not cross-contaminated by any other previously used flavors.
