The salvaged whiskey barrels came from the world renowned Scottish distillery "Glenfiddich".  Having stored whiskey during there lifespan, most of these reclaimed whiskey barrels contain just a little whisky that has seeped back out of the oak timbers. In fact, you can hear it swishing around inside when you move some of the old barrels.  Obviously any whiskey residue wont be safe to drink due to contamination, nevertheless,  the smell is absolutely delightful and a real talking point for those who have came to buy them
