Oak Whisky Barrel Water Butt

Oak Whisky Barrel Water Butt

An attractive water butt made from an ex-distillery, 181 litre (40 gallon) oak barrel.

Teetotalers please note: there is a real scotch whiskey smell in the barrel so you may wish to wash it out before first use!

When positioning your barrel ensure you use a brick or paving slab base to enable you to fill watering cans from the tap. It is best to site the barrel in a shaded position as this will give the barrel a longer life. During a hot summer you should never fully empty the barrel so the timber does not shrink and leak.

A 83mm hole has been cut in the top to fit most standard sized drain pipes (see instructions at bottom if you want to fit a rain diverter). A 20mm hole has been cut 16cm from the base ready to fit a standard brass tap (simply screw the tap into the wood and it will be nice and tight). This barrel has been photographed with a decorative tap (not included).
