Having a party or event? Maybe just want something unique for your backyard dinner or party? Raised to about 9 inches with a stay-up safety lid, easy to get your drink. And if you need a bottle opener, well there’s one attached. The ice chest will definitely be a conversation piece at your party.
RECYCLED: The wine barrel ice chest gives us the outside of a real wine barrel with its hoop, rack and wine stains. This ice chest makes us think of the wineries as this is a full size wine barrel and lays on it’s side on a barrel stand similar to the way they are in the winery. Using retired wine barrels adds a special touch for those who are sensitive to ecology and recycling.
UNIQUE: The ice chest is a whole wine barrel. This is our large size. The stand is made from the barrel heads and staves with a douglas fir option. All are 1“ solid white oak. We soak the barrel in water to ensure the staves swell and are watertight. But just to be safe, we add a liner inside for water tightness and a drain hole and stopper to drain the melted ice. The ice chest 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 chest. 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 chests 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 chest.
OPTIONS: Choice of stands:
INCLUDED: Each ice chest comes with a bottle opener and inside liner to ensure water tightness especially if being used indoors. It also has a drain and stopper to drain the melted ice. A stand is also included.
CUSTOMIZE: Please call or email us to change the height of the bucket or to personalize. Personalization is extra.
All of our ice chests are made from French or American oak wine barrels recycled from older wine barrels. Each ice chest will be unique in coloring, condition and size due to variations in production of wine barrels and wine. When we cut the lid from the barrel, the sizes of each barrel lid may be slightly different in size dependent on the placement of the hoops. No two are alike. Even when we stain/oil them, no two ice chests 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!
