The oak barrel has changed very little in the last 2000 years. That is until Giraud invented the revolutionary Black Head® Barrel.  Giraud's secret formula is an advanced heat treatment process for the barrel head-sets.  The treated wood is darkened all the way through and gains an intense aroma.  This creates a unique and complex flavor profile, quite different from a regular barrel. 

The Black Head® breakthrough gives another dimension to the oak maturation of wines and spirits.  Imagine the edge Black Head® could give your product.  Customize your  barrels further by adding VS or XOV wood mixes to your Black Head® barrels.
