The Story Behind the Ring
Weathered Whiskey Barrel Wood Ring
Ancient as it may be, there is an undeniable refinement about whiskey and its production. Whiskey barrels come from hand-selected oak trees, usually from the white oak family, and are the primary means by which the flavor of the final spirit is achieved. The charred inside of a whiskey barrel acts to remove Sulphur while the wood sugars are caramelized and leech into the whiskey. Our weathered whiskey barrel wooden rings are an ode to those smoky barrels which cure your favorite whiskey to maturity. We have several of the most well-known Tennessee whiskey barrel woods in stock, but if you have a favorite that isn’t listed here and have access to some barrel wood, we can probably make something custom!
Weathering the whiskey barrel wood is done via an old process, whereby the wood is dipped in water mixed with ferrous sulfate, the same stuff often used as a mineral supplement. You can read more about that process here. The mixture reacts to the tannins in the wood, turning them silver, gray, or dark gray, creating a permanent color change in the wood that is unique to each piece.
North American Bull Elk Antler Ring Inlay
The elk antler for our rings is sourced from the natural sheds of North American Bull Elk, making it 100% cruelty-free. While we are fans of hunting, we like the thought of these rings being connected with a grand creature still roaming our beautiful country.
Just like wood in the ring, each antler has unique characteristics that make every ring one of a kind. Some of our elk antler inlays will have a bit more color to them, while others are quite white. We try our best to find a good balance when crafting each ring by hand.
Can you use antler you send in?
Every antler we use in our rings goes through strict quality control selection to make our elk antler rings as strong as possible. Unfortunately, we are not able to use antlers from our customers to help ensure the strength and durability of your ring.
Dual Metal Ring Inlays
We're all about simplicity in design. To us, that's elegance. We added two metal inlays to this wooden whiskey barrel ring to take it a notch higher, and to give it some refinement and class. The balance of rusticity and Main street appeal make this a great ring for formal or flannel.
