Because we like to use salvaged woods for our wood rings, we are always on the lookout for new and unique wood sources. When we stumbled upon wood from white oak barrels that aged Jack Daniel’s whiskey, our interest was piqued. Jack Daniel’s crafts their own wood barrels. They char and toast the inside of the barrel to carmelize the wood’s natural sugars. The whiskey draws its rich amber color and distinctive flavor from the toasted oak. Simply Wood Rings appreciates good craftmanship. We also appreciate good flavor. That’s why we thought this would be an excellent salvaged wood choice to inlay into our stainless steel ring.
