These barrels may have coloured paint on the top this is a feature of feature of these ex-distillery barrels. we would advise this can be painted over using a black gloss paint if required to make it look more natural in the garden.You can raise your barrel off the ground with a brick or paving slab base to enable you to fill watering cans from the tap.

We cannot guarantee how many years these barrels will last, but can give you some tips on how to look after your barrel for longer life. During a hot summer you should never fully empty the barrel but keep some water in the barrel so the timber does not shrink and leak. Also sitting the barrel in a shaded position will give the barrel a longer life. Please note this water butt is large, measuring approximately 100cm tall, 70cm in diameter, and may not fit through a standard single doorway easily.

Please note: there is a real scotch whiskey smell in the barrel you may wish to wash it out before first use.
