Reclaimed Bottle Opener
A handcrafted bourbon barrel bottle opener, handmade with authentic staves from a reclaimed bourbon barrel is a real keepsake and conversation piece. Before we purchased the used bourbon barrel from the distillery in Kentucky and crafted it into this heritage piece, the barrel was filled with the finest of Kentucky Bourbon and sat in an aging rick house at the distillery producing one of America's most unique products; Kentucky Bourbon.
Our artisan makers have disassembled the reclaimed barrel and used the side staves to make this bourbon barrel bottle opener. After the barrel is disassembled, our artisans sand the wood, attach a full sized gun metal opener to the stave and surface finish it so it will last for decades. You can see the original cooperage grooves detailing how the side staves fit with the barrel head to form the original barrel. What a heritage this piece carries as it started as virgin white oak in the foothills of the ozarks, was crafted and charred by the cooperage house into a barrel, filled with white liquor at the distillery, and aged in rick house for 5 years as the charred wood fiber transformed the white liquor into a mellow brown bourbon. We've attached a leather strap for easy hanging if you so choose.
A great conversation piece when you know the history and story of the wood as well as a highly functional kitchen, bar, our outdoor grilling area bottle opener.
