Each year, thousands of barrels that have previously contained rum, sherry, port, and bourbon are shipped to Scotland to mature and flavour its iconic drink - whisky. Once they have completed this task, often decades later, the barrels are broken apart ready to be sold as firewood.
This is where we come in. We handpick each piece of wood, recognising its potential to become one of our beautiful, handcrafted products.
The rough pieces of oak are given a new lease of life as we work carefully with them in order to retain their character, bringing out the beauty of the oak grain without losing the natural appearance of the whisky-aged barrel.
The result is that each item is completely unique, with silky smooth wood that is lovely to touch and which often has a lingering aroma of whisky.
Run by husband and wife team Ollie & Abigail Ellis, White Rose Creations is based just 5 miles from Dufftown, the Malt Whisky Capital, where we source all our barrels. We are ideally situated at the very heart of Scotland’s Malt Whisky Trail – the only trail of its kind in the world – and are privileged to be able to offer such an authentic piece of whisky making history.
We take great care and pride in each item that leaves our workshop, and hope that you will get a sense of this as you browse our site. We believe that no matter for what reason you are looking to purchase a gift – birthday, Christmas, wedding, new home, anniversary, or simply a little treat – we have something to offer.
If you have any questions or would like to get in touch then you can find all our information on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
