How long does the aging process take? It’s your recipe so it’s all up to you! It could take as little as 3-4 weeks to develop the taste you crave, or it could take several months in larger barrels.
A small taste test every few weeks should help you determine when the flavour is just right:
- Remove the bung from the top hole.
- Turn the nozzle on the spigot to fill your glass; close the nozzle.
- Place the bung back in place and tighten.
Remember, spirits aged in smaller oak barrels will age faster. In fact, a spirit aged for a month in our 1 L barrel may look and taste like one that’s been aged twice as long in our 5 L barrel.
