Description

Celtic Timber’s oak whiskey/rum barrel planters are available in a variety of sizes and make a perfect addition to home gardening.

Our oak half whiskey barrel planters are made from genuine Scotch whiskey barrels and then cut in half to create the perfect planter for your plants, herbs or trees.

Our solid oak whiskey half-barrels are extremely high quality and come with steel bands.

20-gallon planter notes – They are both effectively the same barrel in terms of appearance and size. The rum barrel started off life as a whiskey barrel and subsequently was used again to store rum so the price reflects the fact that they’ve had an “extra use”. Also, the Grade B and Grade C planters may contain a hole at the bottom as standard as they have come into us.

Approximate Dimensions:

20 gallon Whiskey/Rum Barrel Planter – Height – 440mm Belly Diameter – 650mm End Diameter – 550mm

27.5 gallon (dumpy) Whiskey Barrel Planter – Height – 440mm Belly Diameter – 730mm End Diameter – 625mm

27.5 gallon (tall) Whiskey Barrel Planter – Height – 510mm Belly Diameter– 720mm End Diameter – 550mm

55 gallon Whiskey Barrel Planter – Height 550mm Belly Diameter– 950mm End Diameter – 765mm

60 gallon Whiskey Barrel Planter – Height 660mm Belly Diameter– 920mm End Diameter – 675mm

Please note that the dimensions are approximate and do vary by up to 5cm between each batch of barrels we get in.

    Very pleased with quality and overall service. The barrel is sturdy and bigger than I thought it would be – but a great planter for our new bamboo. Looks lovely in the garden

    I ordered two half whiskey barrels. One of them is great, sturdy. The other is wobbly, the ‘planks ‘ feel loose and the metal band round the outside is wobbly and I can slide it about. I’m not sure what is holding it together. Perhaps when it has something in it, it might feel more stable. I hope.

    The smell from the barrels goes, don’t worry about the smell!

    Prompt delivery.

    • Jon Howcroft (store manager)

      Hi Nicola.
      The bands shouldn’t be wobbly – we pin them to the wood to prevent this. I can only assume that the pin has somehow loosened in transport. Are you able to call our office on 01437 710043 and speak to our customer service team to arrange a replacement?
      Thanks
