Video / How To Make A Whisky Barrel

We recently had the privilege of watching a cooper construct a whisky barrel from scratch. So, we thought that we would share the experience with you by recording it. Below you will see Brian Morgan from the Speyside Cooperage in Alloa, Scotland use his training and skill to build a cask using only the wooden staves, metal hoops and traditional tools.

The video is split into two parts. In Part 1 you will see how he takes the basic components and puts them together to form a recognisable barrel, while in Part 2 you will see the finishing touches that make the barrel watertight and ready to receive spirit. Watch and enjoy, and we hope you find it as fascinating as we did.
