A whole lot of fun from American distillery Copper Fox! This barrel kit comes with two bottles of 70cl new make rye spirit (bottled at 62% ABV), and a two litre freshly charred American oak barrel.
The rye spirit unaged is rich in classic rye spice and sweetness, but after aging for a short period (you do not need long in small barrels like these) it develops a lovely colour and dense oaky vanilla flavours.
These barrels are reuseable, and the possibilities are pretty much endless. You could refill it with sherry and add a sherry-finish to one of your favourite malts. Or you could put in some mezcal, and give a Speysider a sweet agave and smoky edge! This is perfect for the whisky fan to play around with, creating their own special aged spirits in the process.
