About us

Our love of bourbon, wood working and our ‘green’ aspirations helped create Bourbon Barrel Rehab.  We take used bourbon barrels from distilleries, breweries and wineries that would normally be thrown away or sent overseas for aging of Scotch and re-purpose them into functional works of art.  Many of the products you may have seen before – planters and bars and rain barrels – but many you may not have seen before -Bourbon Barrel Smoker Chips & Chunks, wine racks and candle holders, lazy susans and furniture, just to name a few.

“These guys are great! Very nice to work with and great products! Drove down from Cincinnati to pick up a bourbon barrel and couldnt have been happier. Purchased a quality, hard to find bourbon barrel at a low price. I highly recommend Bourbon Barrel rehab. Great products and friendly people!” — Eric Edwards

Jeff Irish, a native Kentuckian raised in Michigan, and Liz Davis, born in Virginia but grew up in Kentucky, are the driving force behind Bourbon Barrel Rehab.  Our love of Kentucky and it’s rich history have motivated us to do a bit of sightseeing.  Through our travels around this great state we have seen some of the great traditions born in Kentucky.  One of the finest is bourbon.

While we make each piece by hand there will be consistency in the designs.  But, at the same time, we are able to customize pieces with sandblasting, staining, painting and wood burning.  Rentals of whole barrel and bourbon barrel bars are also available. Please email us at bourbonbarrelrehab@gmail.com with any questions.

Bourbon Barrel Rehab has gone from a couple’s hobby to a growing business

Bourbon culture can sure go a long way in the inspiration department. For instance, Bourbon Barrel Rehab LLC, a Louisville-based business that makes custom art, furniture and other pieces, was an idea that emerged while its owners were on a tour of Woodford Reserve Distillery near Versailles…
