PeteB Posted May 20, 2011 Share Posted May 20, 2011 I am making 100% rye and would like some advice on what type of barrels I should use to age it. I am from Australia. All the other whisky distilleries here produce a "scotch" style and age it in reuse barrels. I have put some away in used barrels but would like to know what is the more traditional way to age rye. Should I use new barrels, toasted or charred? Could I use shaved used barrels? Are reuse and/or refurbished barrels used for rye? If I need new barrels, are there any barrel makers on this forum who would like to make me a few smaller barrels and flat pack them and ship to Australia?
