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 is 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.
Offset Copper & Natural Whiskey Barrel Edge
Sometimes the simplest design is the best. By pairing the weathered whiskey barrel with the natural whiskey barrel edge you get a contrast that is subtle, yet exactly right.
Copper adds a distinct bit of class to the ring; a touch of Main street with the Rustic appeal.
