All of those fine spirits and wines are aged in oak casks for many years to add quality, aroma, and subtle shades of color to them. I have collected a number of wood blanks from distilleries around the world and made the aged oak into fine pens.
Everyone asks..."Can you smell the aroma"? Unfortunately not, as it is sealed in wood, as my part of the turning and finishing process. However, I do have a certificate of authenticity for each pen which tells where the oak cask wood has come from.
