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 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. 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.
Black Cherry Wood Ring Liner
Our home sits on what used to be an orchard, and a few old trees still exist near us. The black cherry wood used in this ring comes from a 35+ foot tall black cherry tree that came down in our backyard. It was cut it in lengths of about 6 feet, sealed the ends with wax, and let it cure for over a year. Afterwards, we split the logs into quarters and let them dry in our shed. We have had a lot of good use from that old cherry tree and now its wood makes its way into these rings.
Black cherry provides an excellent contrast in color to the smoky gray whiskey barrel wood, which is why we have decided to use it in this design.
Offset Metal Ring Inlay
We wanted to make this wood ring pop! We decided to showcase this design with silver adds a touch of class to the ring and contrast against the whiskey barrel wood. However, we've seen this ring in all shades of metal inlays and each one looks great.
