Quickly infuse cocktails with "barrel aged" flavor!


Wood Chips


Old Fashioned



Vieux Carre



Prepare a sous vide bath with an immersion circulator and polycarbonate tank with lid. Set the temperature to 60ºC.

Char the wood chips with a blow torch. The choice in wood variety is yours. Experiment with different varieties to find one that you prefer.

Batch you desired cocktail and vacuum seal the mixture with the charred wood chips. It is critical that the mixture is vacuum sealed or the alcohol will evaporate during the cooking process.

Cook the mixture at 60ºC for 24 hours.

Ice bath the mixture until fully chilled.

Strain the cocktail and reserve.
