Varnished or natural
For best results in ageing spirits or wine, you should use a natural wood barrel. This will allow the barrel to breathe which is essential for releasing the oaky flavour and colour into the liquid.
A varnished barrel is good as a decorative item as it helps protect the wood from stains etc.
