    It says it can dispense drinks of all kinds. What about the quality of the product coming out of it? I plan on using it to dispense mead. Will the oak affect the clarity of my drink?

    BEST ANSWER: i have purchased two kinds of barrels. the charred barrel will give the liquid a bit of a smoky flavor and will impart some of the color from the charring, think bourbon.
    the uncharred barrel gives the liquid just a slight blonde coloring (i used it to age some grain alcohol). the color was a modest change and imparted only a small amount of the oak flavor. it should not be noticable with mead. hope this helps.
    We want to fill the barrel with commercial moonshine and dispense to make cocktails. Will this work for that purpose?

    BEST ANSWER: Hi Chris,

    We see no reason why this would not work for your purpose, it sounds like a great idea! Before using, you have to "cure" the barrel first for 3 to 5 days to ensure it doesn't leak. An instruction sheet detailing that process in included with your order.
