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 3 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 just less than half of a wine barrel. This is our small 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. When not in use, periodically put water in to keep it watertight. The ice cooler is rustic by design and includes an attached rustic bottle opener that reads "Open Here". 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: Choose Skull if you want the halloween skull bottle opener (if available) instead of the "Open Here" bottle opener.
INCLUDED: Each ice cooler comes with a bottle opener.
CUSTOMIZE: The bucket is about 14” tall depending on the hoop placement. Please call or email us to change the height of the bucket or to personalize. Personalization is extra.
Please note that although the same care and quality is put into all of our products, there will be natural variation due to the wood selection (either French or American white oak), wood figure, winery or cooperage markings, wine stains from the inside of the barrel, and other factors. No two pieces will be identical and each has its own story to tell!

Tip: To keep ice coolers watertight, put a small amount of water in the cooler to keep the staves (wood) expanded. This will keep the cooler from leaking.
