(EN) – Wine & Whiskey Barrel Carvings & Signs: Terminology & Examples | ewoodart.com

Wood barrels have been used for centuries to store, and often age or cure, a broad range of food and drink. Today, wood barrels have been replaced by more modern and cost effective containers, with the notable exception of oak barrels for ageing and flavoring wine and whiskey, and more recently, “craft” beverages including other spirits and beers. These barrels are routinely retired in huge numbers from wineries and distilleries after several years of use, which helps explain the growing number of them that are turned into decorative carvings and signs, as well as furniture and other products.
