Wine & Whiskey Barrels

We have once used bourbon barrels, multiple used wine and whisky barrels, brand new oak barrels, and half barrel planters. We also have one of the most advanced barrel rejuvenation processes on the market for our refurbished barrels.

Barrels

Whiskey/Bourbon Barrels

Our once used bourbon barrels are freshly emptied barrels that have been aged with bourbon in it for at least four (4) years. These barrels are made from the highest-grade white oak timber and are quarter-sawn with the grain from straight grained timber. Each barrel dumped no more than one (1) month previous to sale and is without any foreign odors. We have three different grades of quality that we can ship. All grades of barrels can be shipped as knockdowns or stand ups.

Wine Barrels

In today’s market used wine barrels are often competing with the once used bourbon barrels for distilling. Distilleries are increasingly coming to terms with using the wine barrel as an alternative to the traditional use of the once used bourbon barrel. Wine barrels are very attractive in terms of price comparison. Our company sources used wine barrels on a global basis. This conveniently allows us to deliver wine barrels to you at viable rates. Wine barrels come in different varieties of sizes and are available in the following:

  • 225 liter barrels
  • 228 liter barrels
  • 300 liter barrels

Planters

We buy used wine and whiskey barrels year round for the purpose of making planters for the lawn and garden industry. If you have a surplus of older barrels let us fill you in on our current pricing.
Country Connection is a leading supplier of wine and whiskey barrel planters. Year round we buy barrels that are no longer viable for reuse. We have facilities in both Harrodsburg, KY and Oroville, CA; this is where the barrels are cut in half and repurposed for the lawn and garden industry.

Refurbished Barrels

We have one of the most advanced barrel rejuvenation processes on the market. Our machinery is highly automated for quality control. Both the depth of interior removed, and the char/toast levels are adjustable to meet any requirements. Typically, we would take an older barrel and shave 3-4 mm off of the inside. This process removes the previous char/toast, as well as any wine or spirit residue, and exposes fresh wood. From there, we char and/or toast to desired specifications. We can take your old barrels and do the reconditioning for a flat fee, or we can provide quality refillable barrels that we've rejuvenated.
