Visit the cooperage in Küssnacht and find out how traditional wooden barrels are made. Tours are available on request.
The production process starts with freshly sawn, untreated wood, which is dried naturally in the cooperage. The drying time depends on the thickness of the wood: one centimetre equals one year. Fire and water are used in the assembly of the barrels. Heat from the fire is used to carefully bend the staves into shape. After this, they are treated with fire over a long period of time, stabilised and on request also burned. The barrels are then bound using premium galvanised iron.
