What are the different sizes & types of barrels?

Many people use the expression 'barrel' irrespective of the particular size or shape. In fact all wooden casks have their own individual names according to how big they are, and how much beer, wine or spirits they contain. The four oak 'barrels' or casks that we sell are: 

INDIVIDUAL NAME VOLUME approx HEIGHT approx TOP DIAM approx MIDDLE DIAM approx WEIGHT approx
BARREL 40 Gallon 2ft 6" 1ft 6" 2ft  40 kilos
HOGSHEAD 56 Gallon 3ft  2ft 2ft 6" 56 kilos
