I was seriously considering the 40 liter for my fall Norton. I'll probably use my 6.5 for the Tannat.

I just spoke to the guy. They have 20, 30 and 40 liter. I explained the gallon/liter issue. He is going to call his rep and find out what the actual volume is. And shipping is $35.00 whether you buy 1 or 10 barrels.

Very interesting...I wonder why they have this disclaimer though:

"While 99% of our barrels are still watertight, we don't recommend or certify their use for any potable liquids."

Because they might not be watertight, or because they're not storing them for use, and might be contaminated? I'll have to give them a call and report back...

I would take that as being they mostly supplying the decorative barrel market. From their about page:

Note that that disclaimer applies to their used barrels. They do not make that disclaimer to their new barrels, AFAIK.
