As you already know, oak comes in many forms. (starts with a tree…….or an acorn) You probably never imagined that someone as devoted to incredibly good quality barrels as I am would ever suggest anything but barrels and tanks as a solution. We advocate for using the finest barrels and tanks you can get when your process calls for oak influence. But what about the ways that other forms of oak can improve the process?
