It has been great buying from Freedom Oak. Their barrels seem to be high quality and custom made which is nice to give out as gifts. I have ordered 3 so far and received two and have been exactly what was ordered with the 3rd on the way I don’t expect anything less from the quality. Production and shipping are super fast. Since giving them out as gifts I am not sure how they are performing or holding up though as I haven’t been able to try one myself and have not had any feedback from customers on them yet. Also from the 3 I have purchased in less than a month they have gone up a little over $10 in price. The one star I will ding them on is customer service. I have reached out a couple times to their contact me page and have yet to receive a response back at all. I understand they are busy making a great product and is not a super urgent problem that needs immediate assistance but no excuse for not following back up with me. Hopefully they are better at getting back to people that actually have an issue.
Shipping was fast, The personalization was all done correctly and the finished work looks great. The barrel rehydrated and sealed up in just under two days which was fast enough to keep me happy and I have had my spirits aging for about a week so far so i cant comment on that part yet but so far I'm very pleased with my purchase. Will likely buy a few more in the future for myself and as gifts.
I was advised I should get my from a gift and then he told me he already has a gift for me. I wanted to find something personal and masculine. I found it here. It turned out lovely.
