Frequently Asked Questions - Used Barrels
Will Mystic Barrels really delivery my entire order for only $50!?

When will I receive my barrels?
We typically deliver within 2-4 weeks, depending on where we are in the delivery rotation. Contact us if you need a better idea of when exactly we would deliver your order.
Is there anything I need to do to the barrel to use as decoration?
We would recommend adding 4 screws into each of the metal hoops around the barrel. Over time, the wood may dry out and shrink slightly. Adding a few screws should keep the barrel together as is for years to come!
Can I leave the barrel outside?
Yes, you can leave the barrel outside. Like any wooden piece, the outdoors can weather the wood. While this may be the desired effect for some customer, for other you may want to consider coating the barrel in an exterior-grade polyurethane or polycrylic to protect the wood. It is recommended that you cover the barrel if directly exposed to rain or snow.
How do you clean or refinish a barrel?
Some customers love the rustic or naturally stained finish of a barrel. Others prefer to clean it up and stain the barrel. These barrels are perfect for either application! Depending on the look you are going for, you can clean the barrel with a hose and some deck-cleaner, or take a sander to the barrel to get down to the wood. Any oil or water-based stain and sealer will work well - just pick your desired color!
Can these barrels be used for aging?
The used whiskey barrels can be used for further aging, but the wine barrels are for furniture and decoration only. The whiskey barrels we currently have were used by various Kentucky distilleries to age bourbon, and were then reused to age corn-based Canadian whiskey. They are freshly-dumped and can be used to age beers, wines, ciders, and other products.
