The Story

Read about how we make our wood rings

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. 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 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 Rose Gold and Elk Antler Edge

    The elk antler edge compliments and contrasts the dark wood of the ring. Perfect for the person who enjoys hunting and a bit of whiskey celebration after a successful outing.

    Rose gold adds a distinct bit of class to the ring; a touch of Main street with the Rustic appeal. If you would like a different color gold (white or yellow) just let us know in the order notes. This ring will look great with any color inlay.

    Each Ring is Handcrafted in North Carolina

    I am proud to craft each ring by hand in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is my honor to play a small role in the new "Made in USA" movement that is taking place across the nation and to do so by sharing part in our American heritage.
