Help us help you! At Free State Cooperage, we seek to provide you with the highest quality, custom crafted barrels made from premium white oak sourced from the region. Our hands-on approach to barrel making is based in the time-honored tradition of coopering and insures quality in every step of the process.
Starting out, we will offer three unique barrel series:
• The Coopers Series – our traditional line built from prime American White Oak carefully selected for its flavor profile and grain and seasoned from one year to 36 months. Sizes: 53-gal, 30-gal, 15-gal, and 10-gal
• The Liberty Series – our heritage line crafted from prime American White Oak hand selected from across our region for its terroir, grain, and seasoned from one year to 36 months. Sizes: 53-gal, 30-gal, 15-gal, and 10-gal
• The Artisan Series – our premium line featuring barrels made from a single source of American White Oak and seasoned from one year to 36 months. Sizes: 53-gal, 30-gal, 15-gal, and 10-gal
All barrels can be toasted or charred to specification.
We would like your input to help us finalize our price points. Like you, we need to cover our costs and want to be as reasonable as possible because the core of our mission is to serve you and help build the Made in Maryland brand. We are open to talking about discounts for committed renewal orders and return of used barrels.
Thank you! Alice Blayne-Allard, Proprietor
