TestimonialsA WORD FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

The usual burn became a gentle warmth

Best thing I ever did! I asked Jeff to take a simple bottle of 40 Creek and see what magic he could make with it…wow!

What he did to it will remain a mystery as no magician ever reveals his secrets. This simple Canadian Whisky now had complex, sophisticated elements to it.

All he said was, “The barrel, patience and time”…Whatever that means?

First there was the addition of smoke followed by a taste of maple…it reminded me of sugar maple…a balanced sweetness. The usual burn became a gentle warmth. It was a whiskey that stood up to the test of my fireplace and the blues…and yet was not out of place pairing with coffee after an elegant meal.

Definitely I will be going back for more…and buying my own barrels! Going to experiment on my own I think. Check it out…you will not be disappointed. Of that I promise you.

My first aging

I cured my barrel according to the instructions provided (easy) and started with an inexpensive rye whiskey for my first aging, after only 3 weeks it already has more of a cask/barrel flavour like the more expensive brands, not harsh or bitter but a spicy, toasty caramelized flavour with a smokey aroma, very pleasant. . . can’t wait for the next 3 weeks of aging! Great product, thanks to Jeff!

Ottawa Police Special Constable Golf Tournament

On Saturday 28 July 2018 I had the opportunity to work with Jeff Roberts and Urban Barrel Company at the annual Ottawa Police Special Constable golf tournament.

From our first meeting, Jeff was keen to come on board and support our charity tournament. Not only were Jeff and his company a pleasure to work with, the products they offer are fantastic. All of our golfers were treated to samples of aged whisky and bourbon from the Urban Barrels and they were thoroughly enjoyed. This was certainly the highlight of the tournament.

Jeff is very knowledgeable and the products on offer are fantastic. Not only do the barrels look great, the fact they age the whisky in a matter of days is also very impressive.

I would thoroughly recommend Jeff Roberts and Urban Barrel Company. I’m now able to enjoy aged whisky in my own house and more importantly I get to age it and pour it from my own personalized barrel. This is thanks to Jeff and his team and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Go on and get yourself a barrel!

Cheers,
David Johnstone

Amazing Customer Experience

I had an amazing customer experience purchasing a barrel from Urban Barrel! I dealt directly with the company owner who went above and beyond to ensure the barrel I ordered as a Christmas gift for my dad was perfect. He had a logo custom designed and engraved onto the barrel, advised me of which size and material was best for my purpose, arranged a quick turnaround time, and organized a more convenient pickup location. Urban Barrel uses high quality 100% American oak that is charred to perfection. I would definitely purchase from Urban Barrel again!

I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family and am going to check out your other products and services. I really appreciate you having that cool logo designed!

Thank you so much,
Taylor Cavanagh

Hunter’s Public House

Urban Barchef has a flair for the cocktail, from classic to cutting edge. His guidance was instrumental in the bar program at Hunter’s Public House and his designs for the initial cocktail menu were innovative and creative. Jeffrey was able to inspire and enlighten the bar staff during training and his expert knowledge of ingredients, tools and techniques was easily passed from him to our staff. Working with Jeffrey was a key element in the success of the Hunter’s cocktail program and would we recommend his services to both new and existing establishments.

These barrels are available to order for next-day pick-up at our pickup location - 260 Centrum Blvd. Orleans.
