OAK CHIPS

OAK CHIPS

All dark spirits (rum, whisky, bourbon, brandy, etc) when made traditionally are water clear when they come out of the still. The spirit is then stored in oak barrels to mature.  Using maturing barrels results in a darker colour, smoothness and enhanced flavour in the finished spirit.

To achieve complexity and colour in home brewed spirits, if you do not have a barrel handy, you can use oak chips to get oak flavour, colour and smoothness in your dark spirits.  There are two methods of oaking and numerous varieties of oak chips that can be used.  Oak chips are normally produced from French or American oak, either untoasted or toasted.
