barrel storage in shipping container


Recommended Posts

is it possible to store whiskey in a shipping container?  Running out of space in the distillery.  If we bought land within 10 miles fenced it and put a locked shipping container on it, would that fly?

It has been done.  I've submitted a number that have been approved without question.

I know Wood Hat Spirits in Missouri store their barrels in a shipping container on their property because they don't have enough room in their distillery.

We used them for a couple of years.  Just make sure to use TTB approved locks, and describe them thoroughly in your application.  Sean

out of curiosity how do you get the second row barrels to the back? two long 4x4's and roll them in? 

also was there any venting requirements needed?

4x4s tied with all-thread.  I’ll post a pic when I return to the distillery next week.
