We have recently designed and fitted,
in conjunction with Schoolhill Engineering, our own
De-Char and Re-Char plant. This option is becoming more
popular with distilling companies as the cost of
replacement casks becomes more expensive.
The useful life of a cask is
considered to be around 4 fillings. After the fourth, the
cask was cut for firewood or garden tubs. The process of
de-char and re-char brings the cask back to life thus
extending the useful life of the cask.
Repair of Butts, Hogsheads and Barrels.
Removal and replacing of any broken staves or ends.
Tested and "passed fit" for filling.
Painting if required.
Sourcing of bourbon barrels from America. Selects or
Remade hogsheads from shooks or bourbon barrels, with new
heads and hoops.

We supply and ship all around the world. Export enquiries
