Original Andrew Young 20L BARREL 

A home barrel is a way to replicate what we do here at the winery, at home. You can develop a unique fortified blend over time that reflects your preferred style on a smaller scale. At Liquid Luxury, we have teamed up with Master Cooper, Andrew Young, of the Barossa Valley, to create a range of home barrels of the highest quality and craftsmanship.

20L is the best size if you want to create a long-term, complex blend as the larger volume means you can consume 5-7 litres a year whilst still developing your unique style of the fortified wine. With a recommended turnover rate of 20-35% per year, a larger-sized barrel with enable you to have steady control of how your unique blend matures, albeit at a slower rate than the smaller barrels. This is because you are keeping your original material in the blend, which over many years will form the oldest and most complex component of your fortified wine.

Hand coopered by master cooper, Andrew Young from the Barossa Valley. These barrels are crafted from minimum age 10-year ex-dry red oak.
