Beach Grandma from Seal Beach, California
There are many oak barrels on the market. I made the mistake in thinking they are all made the same...after all the pictures all look the same. They are not all the same. I have had 3 barrels from Oak Barrels Ltd. They are lovely and produce a soft, aged wine vinegar. I ordered a barrel from another company by mistake--never again. The workmanship was terrible, the bottom was GLUED together, the barrel never stopped leaking and was so poorly fitted that every join could been seen with gaps. Don't be fooled; it is an expensive lesson. Thank you Oak Barrels Ltd. Your barrels are beautiful and work impeccably well. I'll be back for more.
