Since 1947 Speyside Cooperage has produced the finest casks from the best American Oak. All our skill goes into making top quality barrels to meet the requirements and expectations of spirit-makers worldwide. Our aim is to ensure that barrels become a modern spirit-making instrument, by combining age-old craftsmanship and state-of-the-art techniques developed by our R&D Department. This, and our dedication to our services, have gradually persuaded us to use a broader range of oak sourced from different areas, and set up businessses closer to our worldwide suppliers and customers. Our Kentucky office was started in November 2010.
Today, the cooperage continues to work and produce these age-old products, still using traditional methods and tools. Although shipped across the world, many casks remain in the US, providing a vital ingredient in Kentucky’s bourbon-making process.
