Disclaimer: if you buy a decent bottle of booze, you should never feel inclined to “flavor” it — whether with a stick or otherwise.
If you buy a crummy bottle of booze, however, we wholeheartedly encourage a little bathtub bootlegging.
After being dropped into a 750ml bottle of booze, a little item called The Whiskey Stick can age the hooch by five years in a couple days and by 15 years in 10 days, according to the folks at Colorado-based Clawhammer Supply. The American white oak stick instantly adds char and oak flavor that will help infuse rail liquor with top-shelf taste.
The company recommends using the stick — which is branded with “Wood is Good” – on corn whiskey, though it’s compatible with any liquor. The sticks are reusable, though they take longer to work their magic the more times they’re used.
Wanna see how this one stacks up?
It’ll only cost you $15.
