Squarrels use 1/3 the wood of a traditional barrel
WHICH IS THE EXACT AMOUNT OF WOOD A BARREL NEEDS to provide equivalent micro-oxygenation as a traditional barrel
The Squarrel square barrel shape was designed around the ability to use stave wood that would otherwise be destined for the wood chipper. In a cooperage, the most common piece of scrapped stave wood is ~15 inches long as it is too small for even a barrel head and therefore doesn't have a use in the traditional barrel world.
The Squarrel stave wood still the same high quality wood that traditional barrels are made from. It's just smaller. This concept allows us to have a positive impact on wood use by minimizing industry waste.
Barrels have been made the same way since ~450BC, but now that we're running low on suitable Oak doesn't it make more sense to use our oak tree resource only, and exactly, where it's needed most?
Did you know...
1 OAK TREE HAS ENOUGH WOOD FOR 1-3 BARRELS 30% OF THE BARREL'S WOOD CREATES FLAVOR
SQUARRELS USE 1/3 THE WOOD OF A TRADITIONAL BARREL -which IS SOURCED FROM TRADITIONAL BARREL TRIM IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE WASTE- WHILE PROVIDING EQUIVALENT EXTRACTION & MICRO OXYGENATION
