Oak Bottle barrel aging apparatus helps enhance flavor profile of alcohol beverages in comfort of own home.

Becoming a seasoned winemaker or experimental spirit distiller is closer than one may think with the help of the first for home-use, barrel aging apparatus known as the Oak Bottle.

Manufactured by Paglione Oak Bottle LLC of Chicago, the Oak Bottle apparatus is a way for consumers to enhance the flavor profiles of their favorite alcoholic beverages in the comfort of their own homes.

According to Oak Bottle, ordinary drinks can be tuned into something extraordinary in taste in a few hours up to a few days

The apparatus is an oak-aging accelerator, that adds subtle caramel notes, smoothness, and other oak traits to the liquid it holds.


Each device is constructed from 100 percent American white oak that’s been handcrafted and charred just like the classic barrel. Similar to using a barrel, it must be filled or bathed with water to let the wood swell and seal itself, at which point it can be filled with a wine or liquor and left to age for anywhere from two to 48 hours.

Oak Bottle How it works

“We are embarking on a journey in a marketplace with a never been done before product that has the potential of revolutionizing the industry,” says Oak Bottle creator Joel Paglione.

With trends in aging whiskey and other spirits are on the rise, “It’s putting the power of experimentation and personalization into consumers’ hands affordably, giving them the chance to age a young spirit into one ripe with character and body in only a few days,” Paglione notes.

The Oak Bottle is available in various stores in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Germany, Dubai, U.K. and Russia.
