Perfecting the Art of Craft

Quality, Consistency and Repeatability in Every Batch.

Premium Barrels and Oak Infusion Spirals

Crafting the industry’s finest products, The Barrel Mill starts with the highest quality American White Oak staves – which are sustainably sourced and air dried up to two years. We then individually mold, fire bend, toast and char to your specifications. Tongue and groove handcrafted heads are also charred, then sealed with local, organic beeswax. And finally, each barrel is hand tested with high temperature, pressurized filtered water to ensure there are no leaks. Nothing is left to chance. And nothing short of perfection comes your way. (Optional distillery logo can be laser engraved on the heads at an additional cost.)

Hybrid Blend

HYBRID OAK INFUSION SPIRALS by The Barrel Mill give winemakers premium French oak and premium American oak together in one barrel set, or pack, calibrated to treat 59 to 70-gallons. For wine aging in neutral barrels the Hybrid Spiral releases fresh, new-barrel, toasted oak aroma and flavor through its patented, spiral-cut design. Virtually all aromas and flavors of the Hybrid Oak Spiral are fully extracted in six weeks rather than eight to 12 months typically to extract from a new hybrid oak barrel -- but at a small fraction of the price.

Burgundy Blend

Burgundy Blend Infusion Spiral barrel packs replicate a barrel toasting gradient using a mix of three different toasts. Predominantly light and medium toasts--with a hint of medium plus--the Burgundy Blend creates a low impact oak alternative that respects delicate, oak-sensitive fruit and quietly contributes an elegant and mild background of premium French oak. This multi-toast pack eliminates the need to blend separate barrels aged with different toasts.

Toasted to Perfection

Single Toast or Multiple Toast Blends Deliver True Barrel-Like Quality

The Oak Infusion Spiral is the reliable oak alternative for simple and fast extraction of toasted oak aroma and flavor compounds that deliver refined, integrated results eight times faster than, and at a small fraction of the price of, a new barrel. Choose one of four single-temperature toasts when you desire a very specific concentrated flavor and aroma profile. Click the toasts below for descriptions. Use one of our Multiple Toast Barrel Pack Blends for a more layered and diverse flavor style.

Light Toast

Made using the coolest oven temperature of our four single-toast choices, Light Toast contributes noticeable structure with its high tannin content while highlighting natural flavors in your beverage. Light Toast is also good for reducing vegetal character in wine. French oak will provide a milder aroma and flavor impact than American oak, and more tannin. Light Toast American Oak will give a noticeable coconut contribution.

Notes of mocha and chocolate are noticeable on the palate. French oak will provide a milder aroma and flavor impact than American oak, and more tannin.
