Whiskey and Wine Barrel Planters

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - "We got two sets of barrel planters. They look awesome and smell like wine. Mystic even added some extra screws to keep the straps in place so I didn't have to. Drilling holes in the bottom for draining is easy... Quality product, real wine barrels, you will not get the equivalent at a box store or anything." - Daniel S. (Verified Buyer)


No barrel store would be complete without the almost-famous barrel planters!

Crafted from our very own authentic whiskey and wine barrels, these barrel planters are ready to greet family and friends on the patio of your home, or welcome customers at your entrance of your business!


The Mystic Differences: 

1. For starters, these are genuine, authentic, used oak barrels from California Wineries, and Kentucky Distilleries. Many box stores are moving towards selling 'look-alike' barrel planters...

Not here! These are the real deal.

2. Many barrel planters will fall apart over time. The metal hoops/bands will come loose and fall to the ground. The wooden staves are then left unsupported and eventually loosen or crack.

This won't happen to your Mystic Barrels Planters! We go the extra step to secure each barrel hoop to the staves. This ensures longexity and structural stability of your barrel planters for years to come!

Whiskey or wine?

Aesthetically, you will find the whiskey barrels to be rustic, and the wine barrels to be cleaner and lighter in appearance.

Dimensionally, the planters are pretty darn close. So, the choice comes down to personal preference on the appearance, or maybe just whether you like whiskey or wine more!


Here are the barrel specs:
        Height: 17-19"
        Diameter (opening): 26-28"
        Diameter (head): 23-24"
        Weight: 55 lbs.
        Origin: Various distilleries and wineries

Note: Each and every used barrel is unique and full of its own character! As such, please know that there inherently is slight variations in the appearance and construction of each barrel.

For the barrel planters, we often salvage and use barrels with wavy or bowed 'heads'. Typically the flatness of the barrel heads isn't of any importance for planters. Contact us if this is an issue for your application or if you have any questions!

Frequently Asked Questions

Wow, barrel planters require a lot of dirt to fill up. Any recommendations?

In fact, yes! One great tip we've learned is to add mulch first as a filer!
Use the mulch to fill up the bottom of the barrel, and then add your few inches of top soil at the top for the flowers.

What is the difference between the used whiskey and used wine barrels? Which should I buy?

Rest assured - these barrels are the REAL DEAL! Not the replica planters at large box stores.
When deciding between whether to use whiskey or wine planters, the decision typically comes down to your preference on appearance, or simply your preference for whiskey or wine as a beverage!
The whiskey barrels inherently have a more rustic character and appeal. The wine barrels retain a cleaner, lighter, and newer look, and often have light red wine stains throughout.
Either way, you can't go wrong!

How long will the planters last?

The most common thing you will see with barrel planters is the hoops start to loosen and fall over time...

Not with your Mystic Barrels Planters! We go the extra step to fasten each barrel hoop to the barrel to ensure they stay structurally sound and continue to look great for years to come!

Are there drain holes in the bottom? 

Because of different requirement for different plants, and the ease of adding them yourself, we do not add holes to the bottom unless the customer asks us to. 

To add drainage holes, simply use a drill and ~1/2 inch drill bit to drill through the bottom of the barrel in as many locations as you deem necessary.
