Gastropod - The Barrel That Could Save a Forest
Barrels, how they are made, their history and some unique techniques cooperages are now doing to enhance flavours for wine and whiskeys is the subject of a 28 September 2021 podcast by Gastropod (www.gastropod.com). Hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley visit several cooperages in the northwest and east to discuss with their owners what's new and what's traditional barrel making. And I get in a few words on the history of barrels.
Its hour of excellent information well worth listening to.
