The Oak offers the only bourbon re-aging program in Raleigh.  You can have your very own 2 liter Oak Barrel at the Oak.

Choose a bourbon from the list below.  If your favorite bourbon is not listed, ask for availability and pricing.  We'll age it to perfection.  The re-aging process is roughly one month.  You can test your barrel to make sure it is ready to tap.  Adoption fees for a 2 liter oak barrel are $350*.

Current Bourbon Options:
Bulleit Rye
Elijah Craig 12 year
Four Roses Small Batch
House Bourbon
Knob Creek
Maker's Mark
Woodford Reserve

You can also purchase an Adopt A Barrel gift certificate at the Oak to give as a gift.  Contact to learn more.

Additional Notes on the Program*
Your adoption fee includes 2 bourbon fills of your barrel.  Each pour from your barrel will cost $1.  Once your barrel is empty, you may purchase more bourbon and refill your barrel to be kept at the bar of the Oak.  Once empty, if the barrel is not refilled within 30 days, you must adopt a new barrel. You cannot remove your barrel from the Oak at any time.  Guests do not get to keep their barrel if they choose not to refill it.  A standard pour is 1.5 oz per drink.  Two liter barrels include roughly 30-32 pours.
