Weathered Whiskey Barrel with Colorado Elk Antler Edge and Offset Rose Gold Inlay – 8mm Wide
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.
Is there any difference in the whiskey barrel woods color?
- This is a great question that customers often ask. All of the popular distilleries use white oak for their barrels, so regardless of the brand you choose, the wood color is going to be the same. However, every tree has its own unique story and will have variations in color even with the same species. The ring you get will be unique.
- 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.
