Oak Infusion Spiral by The Barrel Mill
Business Genre
Short Business Description
Introduced in 2004, the Oak Infusion Spiral has set a new
standard in oak alternatives. By cutting a spiral form out of
premium oak stave wood, maximum surface area is created
inside a small envelope. This results in a smarter, faster, more
efficient way to give new, barrel-quality oak to wine, beer,
spirit and cider – all at a reduced cost and timeframe.

We applied the precision and consistency of convection oven
toasting and created a product that delivers, arguably,
the most barrel-like results of any oak adjunct on the market.
The key is the spiral’s dual grain exposure of oak cross grain
and parallel grain. It speeds submersion and extraction of
flavor and aroma compounds into liquid. In a matter of weeks,
you get refined, integrated new oak impact for your beverage.
Long Business Description

The Barrel Mill is a cooperage in Central Minnesota specializing in manufacturing premium oak barrels for the craft spirit industry. We are also the patent-holder and world producer of the Infusion Spiral® system. We use only the highest grade oak available to the industry, selected for uniform grain tightness and aged outdoors to achieve tannin reduction, proper moisture content and development of complex wood compounds. Our oak is seasoned for a minimum of 24 months.

Our family has been in the lumber business for more than 100 years. In 2004, we purchased the cooperage and applied our expertise and knowledge gained from nearly a century in wood and woodworking. Combined with extensive investments in new machinery with state-of-the-art technology we have built The Barrel Mill into a leading brand name that represents quality products for the beverage industry.

The Infusion Spiral is our patented system used to add flavor and aroma to fine wine, but also can be applied to whiskey, rum, tequila, and beer. It has been used in thousands of wines since 2005 with outstanding results from every major wine region in North America. The unique spiral-cut design creates unrivaled surface area in a small package, allowing fast extraction of the toasted oak's aroma and flavor compounds with refined integration in the wine.
