Speyside Bourbon Cooperage
The Speyside Bourbon Cooperage® has specialized in providing barrels for spirit-making since 1947. With that longevity comes a wealth of experience and knowledge in the industry. All their skills go into making top quality barrels to meet the requirements and expectations of spirit-makers all over the world.

The aim at Speyside Bourbon Cooperage is to ensure that barrels become a modern spirit-making instrument by combining age-old craftsmanship and state of the art techniques with equipment developed by the research and development team.

Speyside Bourbon Cooperage purchases high quality Appalachian, Ozark and Northern White Oak, sourcing and hand-selecting all of its raw materials, much of it coming from within a 30-mile radius of the Jackson, Ohio facility. The oak is weathered for 24 months drying time in outdoor storage yards. After air drying, raw materials are brought inside the facility to bring the seasoning process to perfection. They operate their own kiln systems to ensure best, controlled drying.

All staves and headings are jointed on custom made CNC jointing machines. CNC jointing makes a tighter fitting barrel, almost completely eliminating leaks and reducing evaporation loss. The quality jointing process produces a dimensionally consistent, repeatable barrel every time.

All of the machinery at Speyside is new to the barrel making industry and custom for the facility. Modern manufacturing principles are built in, with quality control and safety being paramount. Computer controls allow machinery to be programmed, producing a consistent barrel.
