Live Demonstrations of Barrel-making by Real Coopers! 

S​ince 2016, Speyside Cooperage has allowed the Barrel Festival to borrow their Coopers for a day. 

These gentlemen demonstrate the assemblage of several barrels throughout the day of the Festival (be sure to check the schedule!). 

You can also purchase your very own hand-constructed barrel (while they last!) the day of the Festival.
