Kentucky Bourbon is America's only native spirit. By law Bourbon must be made in NEW white oak barrels. The many years spent aging in new barrels is why Kentucky Bourbon is the best whiskey in the world today. After the Bourbon is removed, the barrels are exported where they are REUSED to make Scotch, Irish Whisky, Rum, and Tequila. The best quality barrels come from Kentucky where they are made and used. Why settle for less when you can have the best. It is our pleasure to offer this valuable part of our Kentucky heritage to you.
Our Kentucky whiskey barrels are crafted from 1 inch thick American white oak Dimensions: 53 gallon, 35'' tall, 21'' dia. at the top and bottom, and 24'' dia. in the middle. New barrels weigh about 110 lbs, used barrels weigh approximately 120 lbs. Barrels are held together by 6 double riveted steel hoops. NOTE: Barrels Shipped Freight Collect - Do not place an order until you receive a shipping quote.

Whiskey and wine barrels make great rain barrels, but they do take a little care.All of our barrels are made to hold liquids and have done so for many years. If barrels are allowed to dry out the wood will shrink and the hoops will loosen. You will have to rehydrate the barrel and tighten up the hoops. It is important to keep the barrel wet. To tighten up the hoops tap them in toward the center of the barrel, this will squeeze the staves together and stop any leaks. Make sure you tap all hoops in. This means you will have to turn the barrel over and tap the lower hoops in as well.
white oak whiskey barrels were
made to hold liquids. These barrels were previously used to
age world famous Kentucky Bourbon, or
other fine Kentucky spirits. We have turned some
of these sturdy barrels into rustic Rain Barrels
for your home and garden.
* Read our Terms and Instructions page before you place an order for one of these barrels.
These barrels will hold approximately 53 gallons of valuable rain water. They are 36'' tall, 21'' in diameter at the top and bottom, and 24'' in diameter in the middle. They weigh approximately 125 lbs empty, and are held together by 6 double riveted steel hoops. Each of our Kentucky Bourbon Rain Barrels comes with a rugged polyethylene downspout adapter on top, a brass faucet near the bottom, a galvanized overflow pipe on the side near the top, and an extra bung. (see photographs). The downspout adapter fits: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2, or3 x 4 1/2 inch downspout.
Residential irrigation can account for 40% of domestic water consumption in a given area. Rain barrels not only store water, they help decrease demand during the summer months. Collection of water from rooftop runoff can provide an ample supply of this free 'soft water' containing no chlorine, lime or calcium. Because it tends to have fewer sediments and dissolved salts than municipal water, rain water is ideal for lots of applications, including vegetable and flower gardens, automobile washing, and cleaning household windows. Saving water in this manner will reduce you demand for treated tap water, and save money by lowering your monthly bill. A typical house has a roof area of 1,200 square feet and four downspouts that will each drain about 300 square feet of roof. That means a rainfall of just 0.3 inches is enough to fill 4 of our 53-gallon Kentucky Bourbon Rain Barrel, one placed under each downspout. A good formula to remember: 1 inch of rain on a 1000 sq ft roof yields 623 gallons of water. Calculate the yield of your roof by multiplying the square footage of your roof by 623 and divide by 1000.
(NOTE: These barrels and any rain water collection systems can quickly be filled and begin to overflow. Take this into consideration when using any rain water collection system).
These barrels are not treated. We cannot be responsible for any wood boring insects that may attack your barrels. If you are going to use them outside you should be aware that insects may attack the barrels as they would any untreated wood.

WHAT CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS RAIN BARREL
I have installed and used this wonderful rain barrel for about 3 weeks now. Everything works as indicated in the description. I was looking for a water saving device that would "blend" in with my landscape and you would have to be 3 feet away before you knew if this was plastic - if you were looking! I am very pleased and would highly recommend this product. My plants love it - and so do I!!

This is a nice addition to the garden. It's attractive and functional. I hooked a soaker hose up to it and my garden is thriving! I even went away for 10 days on vacation and came back and it was like I had a gardener. I like this product so much that I ordered a second one.
DON'T BUY RAIN BARRELS WITH THE FAUCET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BARRELIf you are considering buying from another source or making your own rain barrel, make sure the faucet is near the bottom and not in the middle of the barrel. This will give you more water to use, and insure your water does not stagnate. We place the faucet just above the second hoop from the bottom.
|IMPORTANT: Before you use a plastic or metal drum as a rain barrel MAKE SURE you know what chemicals were stored in the drum. Many plastic and metal drums have labels warning not to reuse them . These labels can fall off or are removed. Make sure you know what the drums originally contained.|
