The start of March saw us take a delivery of another 12 barrels (of course it was snowing, though it did make for a nice photo). A mixture of ex bourbon, ex red wine and virgin oak hogsheads (approx. 250L).
With the barrels prepped and checked.
We painted them in our J. Gow Rum colour.
The frames were built and the barrels laid into position, before being filled.
Filled with either our HD (heavy dunder) rum, made with reused backset in the fermentation and extra dunder. or DS rum which is a higher strength rum, made with an additional distillation.
We think they look rather good all branded up.
Now all we have to do is wait. Luckily we filled a few barrels last year, that will be ready sooner.
