Wooden taps suitable for use in barrels. These barrel taps are tapered along their length. They are fitted by simply drilling a suitably sized hole in the barrel and hammering the tap in. If the seal is not initially completely watertight it will become so after soaking. By filling the barrel with water to just above the tap level, the tap and the barrel wood around it will swell and form a seal. This may take several hours.
Made from locally grown trees, these taps have been made in this style for decades.
