Our products are made from recycled solid oak whisky barrels that have for years have been used for the storage and ageing of whisky and wine, overtime this will of soaked into the wood. For items that are going to be left outside for long periods we recommend coating with a good quality exterior wood varnish and that you do this on a yearly basis.
Unless specifically stated in the product description our barrel products are NOT 100% water tight. With items such as the 2oo Ltr coal bunker which have removable lids some moisture may seep in. We recommend that they are not left out exposed to the elements.
With our planters we would advise that they are planted out as soon as possible as the soil and compost will help to prevent the wood from drying out.
For products which will be kept inside such as wine racks or drinks cabinets we strongly recommend that a mat of some type is placed under the cabinet to prevent any seepage that may occur from ruining your flooring, especially if you have purchased one of our rustic finish items.
We hope you get years of enjoyment from your solid oak whisky barrel furniture you have purchased from us, if you have any specific questions on the care and maintenance of your product please Contact Us.
