TetonDistillery Posted October 2, 2014 Share Posted October 2, 2014 It seems impossible to get new barrels in sufficient quantities these days. It has gotten to the point where I am giving serious thought to raising money from investors to start buying wood and then setup a cooperage. 18 months till new barrels. It seems some of the smaller scale cooperages only make about 5,000 barrels per year, which is about 14 barrels per day. Is that crazy? The demand seems to be there. It would seem to me that once your distillery is doing several barrels per day of bourbon production, it would make sense to invest in the facilities to make your own barrels. Some of the larger craft distilleries are already doing that scale of production. What do you think? Feel free to criticize me if this is stupid. I can take it.
