*Tanks can also be made into open top fermenters with a removable wooden lid (depicted in the photo below).
Tanks come with a maintenance guide on how to maintain your tank before, during, and after aging your product.
Cognac, Armagnac, and Clavados Casks
These casks come refurbished:
Pressure tested to ensure tight barrels
Staves replaced if needed
The inside of cask is left alone and the wood is still soaked with the previous spirit to impart flavors into your product.
Sizes: 225L – 600L
Call us for more information and current pricing and availability.
Below are pictures of the before and after refurbishment of the casks.
The casks come in old and dusty from years of aging in cellars in Franc and are turned into great looking casks ready to impart their flavors into your craft beverage.
