Small formats usually go with small production or trial runs. It has always been a challenge to provide quality for such products, more than for standard barrels. For this as well, as we have done in other fields, we have been waiting for the optimal work to release ASC Small Format barrels. Therefore, we produce only 55lt. and 110lt.
Due to the proportions of small barrels, the concentration of wood and its exchange with spirits are difficult to calibrate. After time experimenting, ASC Barrels has learnt how to select the best barrels which can be turned into small formats - which are then recouped. The selection and air-drying processes of wood are also specific to small formats.
The result of this is a range of products adapted to the needs of our customers.
