CASK REPAIR AND REFURBISHMENT

An age-old craft coupled with modern mechanics

Broken and cracked casks aren’t necessarily destined for a life on the scrap heap. Our repair services ensure a thorough process so every barrel that leaves the facility is 100% ready for refill.

Our experienced coopers will inspect the casks and through our diligence and a winning combination of classic coopering techniques, alongside mechanical handling machinery, our state-of-the-art refurbishment and repair facility ensures you will receive leak-free, refill-ready barrels that will be good for years of use.

EXTENDING THE LIFE OF A CASK

Decharring, recharring and toasting

We deliver scrape and char, as well as offering a toasting operation. Both the level of charring, or toasting, and the depth of interior oak removed are adjustable to meet even the strictest of standards.

Exhausted casks can be rejuvenated by scraping the inside of the cask, removing the used wood and bringing new wood in contact with the spirit. Our objective is to expose fresh oak, and either re-char, or re-toast the barrel, making them like new.

RECYCLING

Being made of oak, casks are  very robust recycled eco-friendly products that are suitable for outdoor use. From garden furniture through to planters, the casks of all sizes can be given a new lease of life through our master craftsmen.
