Our wine barrels have been freshly emptied and imported from genuine vineyards throughout Europe after being used to store and age some of the best red wines in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.
They have been built from expert coopers using quarter-sawn solid oak for the lids and staves and galvanised steel bands to hold the barrels together. They are generally between 3 and 5 years old and because of this, they are ideal for use as water butts.
All of Celtic Timber’s oak wine barrels have a capacity of approximately 55 gallons (225 Litres).
When used correctly, water butts can provide all the water necessary for keeping your garden alive throughout the long summer months.
The great news is that water butts don’t have to be an ugly piece of green plastic in your garden. By using a converted wine barrel water butt, you are able to create an aesthetic and beautiful garden ornament, whilst maintaining the practical use of a water butt.
Please note, barrels will vary in appearance depending on our current stock.
Available with or without a lift-off lid and a range of accessories (rainwater diverters will be black or white depending on stock).
We do send the oak raiser blocks out separately from the barrel but at the same time so will arrive the same day just not together (due to weights). We will try to send 8×4 oak blocks but depending on availability they will be larger or smaller. They will be sufficient for need.
