Cooper: Andrew Young Cooperage, Barossa Valley

Only the best barrels and casks can create our world-class Muscats, Topaques & Tawnys. While not all fortified wine lovers have the luxury of owning a solera of century-old barrels, we strive to give our customers the best tools, knowledge and advice on their winemaking journey, which brings us to this exciting announcement.

We are releasing 4 x 10-litre and 26 x 20-litre limited-edition Stanton & Killeen branded barrels. These limited-edition barrels are handcrafted from ex-bourbon and whiskey barrels purchased by 5th-generation winemaker Norman Killeen in the 1970s; these housed S&K fortified wines for more than 50 years.

Handcrafted by master cooper Andrew Young from the Barossa Valley, these barrels have undergone a lengthy 3-year seasoning process at the winery after being completed. Each barrel has a unique identification number, history plaque and signed certificate of authenticity.

You'll also receive the opportunity to create a personalised base blend to kick-start your winemaking journey. Purchase yourself or with your friends and family.

*Please note that all barrels are carefully seasoned for several months at the winery to ensure they will not add excess oak to your fortified wines. Because of this, there are times when we have no barrels currently available. We suggest you call or email us to discuss the various barrel options available.
