Oak barrel is still a perfect capacity for strong drinks. It helps to preserve the taste of alcoholic drinks and foods (sour cabbage, for example) and to keep old good traditions. But in the time of industrialization such production tends to be rare.
Blogger muph came to the small town Rossosh in the south of the Voronezh region, Russia, to see how oak barrels are made today.
Thanks to muph for sharing the images!
