More on Barrel or Oak Aging Cocktails: Enthusiasts can purchase a 1-liter barrel through 1000 Oaks Barrel Company or Oak Barrels Ltd to age cocktails 3-4 weeks. Alternatively, purchase toasted or charred oak chips or sticks and add directly to a bottle to “age” anything and expedite the process. Aging imparts a toasty, vanilla, caramel or even butterscotch quality to drinks.
