Weathered Whiskey Barrel Wood

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 wood rings are an ode to those smoky barrels which cure your favorite whiskey to maturity. 

Weathering the 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.

Elk Antler Edge

The elk antler edge compliments and contrasts the dark wood of the ring.The elk antler for our rings are sourced from natural sheds of Colorado Bull Elk. 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.
