Whisky Barrel flooring is the new must have for the discerning whisky enthusiast who wants to wow their fellow whisky anoraks. The Scottish whisky industry was searching for a new innovative way of disposing of the 20,000 used barrels of whisky produced each year which previously went into landfill sites and an innovative Glasgow based company came up with this genius solution.
They came up with a system of straightening out the panels so they could be used for hardwood flooring. This environmentally friendly system means this whisky drenched oak has served Spanish Sherry or American Bourbon before spending years maturing scotch whisky. Each barrel has its own story whether maturing a smoky Islay or a fruity lowland whisky. This is a fantastic purchase for a bar area in your home or for bars around the globe.
This doesn’t mean you entire home will smell of whisky of course but if you press your nose to the wood there is definitely a very pleasant aroma. Up to 3% of the flooring contains stamps of charring meaning your flooring could even have the name of the distillery it came from. The machining process of the wood means you are still purchasing quality oak flooring just with the added benefit of its colourful history.
