Looking for something to make that special event unique? How about whiskey barrels from a local distillery? These barrels make great additions to your wedding, reception, party, picnic, hoe-down, shin-dig, barn raising, square dance or what have you as tables or decorations. Your imagination is the only limit. We have great daily rental rates or value-priced weekend rates:
WHISKEY BARRELS: $20 ea. (24 hours) or $30 for weekend (Friday to Monday)
We also have wine barrels available for rent at the same rates; they are slightly taller and wider, and have a newer appearance. Burlap sacks are available for rent as well. Please contact us for details.
36 W. Fayette Ave, Unit 1, Salt Lake City, UT 84101 (970 S between Main & West Temple). We're available Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9am to 6pm, and Tuesday and Thursday by appointment.
The whiskey barrels spent several years aging bourbon and whiskey for High West distillery. Some were chosen by local brewing companis to age their small batch, high-point beers.
No. Most of these barrels have been air-dried, and shrunk a bit, breaking the seam where the wood slats come together. DO NOT FILL RENTAL BARRELS WITH LIQUID OR DEBRIS.
The barrels weigh 80-115 pounds each. They are made of 1" thick white oak, charred on the inside, and held together by 2" steel bands on the outside. They are 35" tall, 26" in diameter at mid-point, and 21" diameter at the top and bottom.
Most barrels have a large High West Distillery in Park City logo painted on the ends.
Cash is preferred but we also accept debit cards and credit cards. A credit card is required for a deposit. Cards are not run for any amount; the information is simply held until the barrels are returned, and will only be charged if the barrels are returned dirty and require cleaning (minimum $5 cleaning fee, if returned dirty), if they're returned damaged and require repair (fees vary depending on damage), or if they are not returned ($135 replacement fee per barrel).
Our Repurpose Lab is located at 36 WEST FAYETTE AVE, UNIT 1, SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84101. We're available Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9am to 6pm, and Tuesday and Thursday by appointment. Please call ahead to book your rental. Limited delivery is available for a fee.
Many people like to use the barrels for decorations. They make an excellent base for a table or bar, pedestals for flowers or other decorative items, a unique altar for weddings, and interesting conversations pieces. Note: If you plan to use them for food and/or beverages, please take care to avoid spills; stains and/or damage will be noted, and you will be responsible for cleaning and/or refinishing.
1. BUY LOCAL - You'll support a small Utah company, not a huge corporation.
2. PRICE - Our rental rates are far lower than most event rental companies in Utah.
3. BACKGROUND - These items have unique stories and make great conversation starters. Cheap, store bought decor can't do that!
4. HELP THE ENVIRONMENT - This material would otherwise go to the landfill or wood chipper. Repurposing keeps our planet greener by eliminating landfill waste and the energy needed to make a new item with the same usefulness.
We are always looking for new, unique, and different materials to reclaim and repurpose from industrial, manufacturing, and commercial businesses. Whether they are used, spent, expired, mistakes, obsolete, byproducts, excess, overstock, trash, factory seconds, blemished, scrap, returns, end of life, cancelled orders, or otherwise unwanted, contact us today to find out what landfill alternatives are available to you!
