Rustic Wine Barrel Horizontal Raised Ice Cooler
Tired of bending down to take a soda or beer out of a plastic or styrofoam ice cooler? Then you’ll love our standing ice cooler. Raised to about 3 feet high, so easy to pick up your drink without bending over. And if you need a bottle opener, well there’s one attached. The staves are attached to stand higher than the bucket and are perfect for stacking paper cups for use. The ice cooler will definitely be a conversation piece at your party.
RECYCLED: The wine barrel ice cooler gives us the outside of a real wine barrel with its hoop, rack and wine stains. It has 4 individual stave legs to raise up the ice cooler bucket to a comfortable level. This ice cooler takes us back to earlier and more simple times. The fact they are also made from retired wine barrels adds a special touch for those who are sensitive to ecology and recycling.
UNIQUE: The ice cooler bucket is half a wine barrel cut horizontally. This is our middle size. The legs are made from the barrel staves. All are 1“ solid white oak. We soak the barrel bucket in water to ensure the staves swell and are watertight or we may add a food safe liner to be watertight. The ice cooler is rustic by design and includes an attached rustic bottle opener. We use a Danish oil with a medium walnut stain to finish the ice cooler. We find that each barrel takes the stain and oil in its own way along with their markings being slightly different, hence no two ice coolers will be the same.
HAND CRAFTED: It is hand crafted by us with love and quality in mind here in California, USA. Every product is custom made to order. Please allow us up to 2 weeks after payment to create your ice cooler.
OPTIONS: Add a liner inside the ice cooler to ensure water tightness especially if being used indoors.
INCLUDED: Each ice cooler comes with a bottle opener.
CUSTOMIZE: Please call or email us to personalize. Personalization is extra.
All of our ice coolers are made from French or American oak wine barrels and staves recycled from older wine barrels. Each ice cooler will be unique in coloring, condition and size due to variations in production of wine barrels and wine. No two are alike. Even when we stain/oil them, no two ice coolers turn out identical. These have been lightly sanded leaving the barrel marks and wine stains, which make them so special. Whenever we work on these barrels, we can’t help thinking that every barrel has a story to tell!

Tip: For ice coolers that do not have a liner, put a small amount of water in the cooler to keep the staves (wood) expanded. This will keep the cooler from leaking.
