On the right sort of boat and in the right spot it would look great and be a nice talking point. A 1 or 2 litre would be fun.

Haven't thought too hard on, it but you got me going now. I am a home brewer and have been wanting to barrel age some beer. Usually a bit of liquid smoke and some vanilla extract is what I will use, but this sounds like a definite "have to try." Thanks for the post.

We visited the town of Tequila while cruising in Mexico a few years back. Bought a 10 litre wood keg full of Reposado Tequila. That's 100% Agave, kinda like a single malt scotch. This was aged for a year and then several more months as we sailed down to the Galapagos. We cracked the keg of Tequila on the Equator and toasted King Neptune heartily. Needless to say our Pacific Crossing was one of many Tequila Sunsets!

Adding oak to any type of container (glass, stainless etc.) is not the same as a oak barrel. The barrel in a way breathes and adds more flavors to the drink than oak parts in a container.

Oak barrels are better as they are small in size and good quality. Oak barrels are used for aging.

Might make good water containers also when the wine/whiskey runs out.

....So, let me ask this ;
If you buy the cheap rum,( Ron Rico comes to mind)...then age it in an oak barrel you might have something drinkable ?
