Our oak barrels are packed in a protective plastic before being sent. Delivering a barrel does not take several years, even for faraway countries. Hence, our barrels don’t have time to get damaged.
Moreover, note that barrels were originally created for transport, so moving around the globe isn’t that much of a problem.
However, in certain exceptional conditions, it can occur that a cask might suffer from an extreme environment. Do not hesitate to contact us if you think that you are based in a high risk region (e.g. a lot of humidity & heat, etc.).
