DISCOVER all about the ancient craft of coopering in our 'Acorn to Cask' exhibition

  • why every household and business depended on the cooper
  • why millions of casks are still needed today
  • why casks are shipped around the world

For instance, did you know -

  • there are over 50 different species of oak growing world-wide but only a few species are suitable for coopering
  • it can take 100-150 years before an oak tree is ready for harvesting
  • oak is the only wood which can be used to produce the casks for quality wines and spirits
  • an oak cask prevents seepage yet the contents can breathe and the flavour is not spoilt
  • a cask can have a life of up to 50 years
