SA Wine Barrels’ re-coopered barrels for Whiskey and Fortified Wines are remanufactured from re-coopered American Oak Bourbon Barrels, while our barrels for Wine, Rum and Spicy Liqueurs are remanufactured from French Oak Barrels.
They are built the traditional way. The oak staves are sourced locally and abroad, with every stave, hand selected for optimum subtraction and quality, before being re-shaved by 2-3mm.
Every barrel is steam tested and checked to be perfectly watertight before wrapped and loaded for delivery.
Every barrel is manufactured to have 5-10% extra capacity.
Important! We are able to accommodate custom requirements.
