Everything gets better with age.
That’s my motto when it comes to drinking spirits. Living by those words is a bit of an expensive habit, but The Barrel Aged Spirits Kit, at $20, provides an economical option for bringing the best of the barrel to your rocks glass.
This kit, from Brooklyn-based W&P Design, provides drink lovers with the opportunity to elevate the spirits in their cabinet with two charred oak barrel aging staves—hellooo cream—and a cheesecloth strainer. The kit also includes a simple guide to barrel aging, so you don’t have to be an aficionado to get the process started.
And—best of all—aging a spirit doesn’t mean waiting a decade either. Oak flavors from the staves can transform the flavor of your favorite light spirit in as little as a few days. Cheers to that.
