    Hello,
    Has anyone bought a French Oak Bsrrel from oakbarrelsforsale.com. ?
    mainshipfred has been good enough to try to get a barrel added to a. pending shipment , so I am hoping for that to happen.
    In the meantime I asked oakbarrelsforsale.com for a price for a Ffench 100 L.
    They came back with $248 including shipping and another price for 5 barrels $555 including shipping, very low pricing to say the least.
    Has anyone bought one, very interested how the experience worked out for them, many thanks in advance.
    Still hoping for mainshipfred to help me out.
    Bill.

    A google search brought up: this: https://www.columbusbourbon.com/2018/12/bourbon-scam-alert-oak-wood-barrel.html

    The comment underneath the article says this group has several websites, including oakbarrelsforsale.com. Other than this, I found no reviews.

    Hello mainshipfred,
    Sorry to pressure you Fred,
    Did you have any luck adding a 100 L Zemplen for me to you're already planned upcoming shipment.?
    All efforts are appreciated Fred.
    Thank you.

    The initial response was it's probably too late but not a definite yet. I can't seem to find my price list but I think the cost without shipping was $280.00. I'd be a little careful about that other company I heard bad things. The link below is from another thread that a member has ordered a french barrel from. You may want to see what he thinks when he received it.

    Thank you Fred,
    Was the $280 price for a 100 L barrel, if so, that's a good price plus shipping.
    A few weeks ago I contacted Vadai , their price for a 100 L Hungarian oak barrel was $332 plus $140 shipping to 38555 Tennessee.
    A little much for shipping I thought.
    If you dont mind I will wait a bit to see if you have any luck with Zemplen for me.
    Thanks so much.

    I have no idea how much the shipping would be but a 30 liter was around $40.00 to Georgia from Virginia. FYI, not all but Zemplen subcontracts to make some of Vadai's barrels. Give me a few more days for them to get back to me. They are normally very responsive but since I haven't heard I think the chances are looking slim.

    I am waiting for my 28l French barrel from artisanbarrels.com. They have good ratings from the Better Business Bureau. I expect to receive mine sometime next week. They also sell two wineries apparently. They have been very responsive on Phone and email.

    The whois lookup for the website is completely blank also. Not a good sign either. As a general rule you should never do business with any website that does not list a phone number to contact them directly on their website (they do not) Only way to contact them is via a web form.
