Sourced from one of the best French cooperage firms used by leading cognac and Bordeaux wine companies, each barrel is made with sustainable French oak. Aged for 24 months before being handed over to the master coopers who then go to work on each handmade barrel. Toasting the wooden planks over an open fire before cutting into staves and beginning the intricate process of "mise en rose" or 'raising the barrel' when the staves are first put together in a temporary end hoop. Then, using a combination of fire, steam and water, the staves are slowly bent into shape before they add the finishing touches - attaching the final galvanised hoops and painting a coat of light natural varnish on the outside.
