FAITMAIZ offers exclusive pieces specialising in reusing old whisky, wine and rum barrels. The large BAR-REL™ drinks cabinet is my trademark piece, crafted from an authentic solid oak whisky or wine cask, lovingly refurbished and individually customised. These Bar-rels are unique, authentic and personalised, allowing you to own your own little piece of whisky or wine history.
Born in France, my grandfather Michel was a joiner and I spent my childhood in his old workshop. So, when I came across an abandoned whisky cask in Scotland it became my project - a hammer, a saw, some screws and something magical happened! That was my first Bar-rel and the start of my journey.
It is so satisfying to see my customers sharing this journey with me and creating their own story with one of my creations.
HOW I WORK
My initial workshop was in Aberdeen, Scotland. I now have my workshop in Vienna, Austria. Your barrel arrives here, the start of our journey to build your authentic piece of wine or whisky history!

You can chose between 3 cask sizes and different wood colours.
Choose your hoops finish, one or two doors, laser engrave the top with your design.
Add "plug in" LED light with a magnetic switch, two shelves, a secret stash or any ideas...What do you have in mind?
Follow the main steps and then let's talk together how to start our journey for you to own your authentic Bar-rel by FAITMAIZ !
Chose the size:
Small - Medium - Large
S= belly diam. 45 cm / Height 65cm / 16kg
M= belly diam. 55 cm / Height 80cm / 26kg
L= belly diam. 65 cm / Height 90cm / 60kg
Chose the wood colour:
Light Oak - Dark Oak - Authentic Oak
Authentic oak means that I will keep the colour as genuine as possible, very dark for the whisky barrels but lighter maintaining the red wine stains on the outside of the barrel for the wine barrels.
Chose the hoops colour:
Silver - Black Matte - Authentic
The hoops on the S, M and Wine barrels will be much lighter than on a 30+ year old whisky cask. Authentic hoops allow you to keep your cask original, for the Large bar-rel it will have a dark brushed metal look.
Choose your style! 3 Packages with options already included to help you choose your perfect Bar-rel. We can also swap, add, remove and design new options on request.
