Perfect for small trees or bushes, our giant planters are great for gardens, pubs, parks and so much more (including barrel race cars with castors maybe?!). We offer our whisky barrel planters in natural (bands and oak staves are left raw) or finished (metal bands painted silver, oak staves finished with a gloss varnish), please specify from the drop down options which you would like.

  • Finish options:
    (steel bands and oak staves are left raw)
    or Finished (metal bands painted silver, oak staves finished with UV oil protection)
  • Drainage holes as standard (please specify when you order if you would like them without holes)


Colour Disclaimer

Each whisky barrel will be slightly different in colour and texture, and these are natural characteristics of our reclaimed casks due to the nature of wood. As a result, every item will appear slightly different. If you require matching items, please let us know and we’ll do what we can to ensure as close a match as possible.

Everyone’s screens are also different which also affects the finish colours you see. We try to edit our photos to show the samples as life-like as possible, but we cannot guarantee the colour you see accurately portrays what your final purchase may look like.
