Oak can darken and silver through time and the effects of weathering. This process will, however, take a while and can be prevented/delayed through regular pressure washing. Alternatively, a protective oil/sealant can be applied to the barrels. Please note, the barrels are stored outside, so may arrive more weathered then pictured.
They are also particularly suitable for conversion to a water butt and for an additional £27.00, we can carry out all the necessary work for this. Water Butts are extremely environmentally friendly. Rainwater is ideal for use in any garden; it’s not subject to a hose-pipe ban, it’s free, natural and organic. We supply a beech tap and cut the hole it fits into near the base of the barrel. We will also drill an 100mm hole in the top to take a standard downpipe, (other sizes on request).
Finishing Touches & Colour
Because our barrels are sourced from a number of high end vineyards, they feature a variety of finishing touches. All are based around a core design that include standard, hand curved staves and metal bands, but finishing specifications do differ. These include willow bands to top and bottom, supporting braces to both faces and vineyard specific markings. Some are daubed with red paint around the bilge to indicate the colour of wine their batch contains.
