The Wood

The Old Russian Oak cooperage crafts wine and brandy casks from 80 to 120-year-old Caucasian (Circassian) durmast oaks (Quercus petraea) with the density of at least four yearly rings per cm. There are three toasting options available: weak, medium (if necessary, also medium+) and strong.

The Old Russian Oak’s Advantages

Our coopers apply classical European production technologies, little known in Russia due to their sophisticated character and high demands to the equipment:

- Own pieces of woodland at the feet of the Greater Caucasus in the Krasnodar region;
- Stocking up of oak wood and accompanying woods (pine, beech) with strict control of the felled trunks;
- Production of split and sawn staves from dense oak wood;
- Natural open-air stave drying for up to two years;
- Manufacture of small brandy and wine casks (up to 10 l);
- Manufacture of vat staves (vat volume from 1.5 to 20 tons);
- Manufacture of eaves board (premium quality pine wood) and parquet planks (beech, oak).

The wood undergoes high-level processing and quality control at all stages of the technological process.
