This looks like it might just be a terrific personalized conversation piece, but it also provides a place to age your own whiskey in an oak barrel. This is much the same as you’d find aged whiskey, only in miniature, so you don’t have to use the giant casks found in distilleries. You can either put whiskey you bought in it, or you can order your own whiskey or rum making kit from the same company. Because it is an oak barrel, whatever you put in it is going to prime up that much faster, according to the site — at least ten times faster to prime than if you just kept it in a bottle, in fact. You can get it in 1, 2, and 5 liter sizes.
Before you use it, you need to cure the barrel according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once you do that, simply fill it up, turn and taste on a weekly basis. Once that’s done, you are free to just tap it in all its oaky glory. This is an exceptional gift that will add a functionally sharp decorating item around the house. Prices start at $75 and go up to $200, depending on size.
