An authentic reclaimed Kentucky Bourbon barrel head, with Basil Hayden’s Bourbon Whiskey artwork engraved into the wood and filled with black. The back of the barrel head has an attached hanger, just slide onto a nail or screw.
Our barrel heads sizes vary slightly, but they are about 21.5″ in diameter.
Because these are real reclaimed Barrel Heads, every barrel head is unique. Some are lighter in color, some darker; some barrel heads have splits or cracks, while others may not. Every barrel head we sell is authentic, and was once used in the aging of Kentucky Bourbon.
Many of the Barrel Heads you see for sale are simply nailed together and ‘wet’. This will cause the wood to shrink over time, causing their barrel heads to become severely cracked. Our barrel heads have been kiln dried to furniture grade standards, then refinished for strength and beauty and come attached to our proprietary wooden hangers.
