Origin of the wood and manufacturing: only the very best will do
Attention to detail
Every stage of the hand-crafted process is important - precision is our hallmark
We are inventing the high-end cooperage of tomorrow
REINVENTING THE ART OF BARREL TOASTING
A SMALLER, HUMAN-SIZE COOPERAGE
Unlike so many cooperages which seek to grow no matter what, we have deliberately chosen to manufacture on a small scale. Our aim is to offer a master craftsmanship of each and every barrel and provide each customer with a personalized service. Our credo is Trust, Respect and Customer Service.
