How to take care of your cask instructions
Established in late 2019, The Wee Barrel Company Limited was born from the idea that scotch whisky consumers be able to customise the cask finish to their whisky in their own cask. It's the whisky enthusiasts opportunity to be their own Master Blender. Whether it be sherry, port, rum or wine, the cask finish is your choice. The finished product will be unique to you. We make the wee barrels from recycled whisky casks that have served the whisky industry for decades. For more information about the products and services we provide, reach out today.

From Big Barrel to Wee Barrel.
We source whisky casks from the whisky distilleries in Scotland. The European oak from sherry butts and wine barriques, the American oak from bourbon barrels. The quarter sawn oak is reworked and recharred to make the wee barrels. The process is much the same as the casks went through all those years ago. The wee barrels are made from oak and the hoops from stainless steel: nothing else.
Customised for you
The wee barrels can be made to your specification in the following ways.
1. Wood Type
(European or American oak)
2. Toasting/charring of the cask
3. Laser Stencilling of the cask end
Customised by you
The wee barrels give you the opportunity to have the cask finish of your choice. By seasoning the barrels with spirit, sherry, wine or rum you can create your unique whisky finish. the length of time you leave the content to further mature adds an additional factor in the finish you want for your whisky. We can offer you some guidance on how this has worked so far but we will be delighted to hear from you telling us what you have achieved with your wee barrel.
Recycling our resources
Each oak barrel is hand crafted here in Scotland from recycled whisky barrels sourced from local distilleries and cooperages. This, we believe, is a far better use of the casks that would otherwise go up a lum (chimney).
