Disassembly and reassembly to variable sizes is generally possible, but will affect the quality of the barrels.
We offer you freshly emptied 'Oloroso' or 'Pedro Ximénez' sherry barrels, which are ideal for aging whiskey, gin, corn schnapps or other distillates.
Sherrys are primarily made from a dry white wine of the Palomino grape. In some cases Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez are also used. After harvesting, the grapes will be dried first and then pressed in order to heavily concentrate the juice. After the fermentation process is completed, brandy is added subsequently and the alcohol concentration increases to up to 15 % or more. When it comes to aging, barrels are not completely filled-up, to have the flor yeast protecting the wine from oxidation and to have the sugar almost completely fermented.
Pedro Ximénez comes with aromas of raisins and figs and is generally sweeter than other sherrys. Oloroso is stronger, darker in color and has a very nutty aroma.
