Whisky Barrel Flooring

This is something you don’t see every day: a floor made out of whisky barrels. The Scotch whisky industry realised it needed an eco-friendly solution to disposing of old barrels, instead of merely consigning them to landfill. Here at McKay Flooring we were happy to play our part. Please visit our shop to order samples and buy reclaimed whisky barrel flooring.

Tasked with finding fresh and sustainable ways to divert 20,000 waste barrels a year from land fill Richard McKay of McKay Flooring Ltd was quick to spot the potential to transform the beautiful prime oak used in whisky casks and turn it into a unique new recycled flooring product bristling with history and heritage.

Recognised as one of the UK’s leading hardwood floor specialists McKay Flooring Ltd bring over 40 years of craftsmanship and experience to produce a range of traditional parquet battens out of the spent whisky barrels. The history and journey of the barrel throughout its long life are still present and there for all to see as we are careful to retains the branded markings of the various world famous bourbon, sherry and whisky manufacturers who have used these barrels over the course of their exotic life cycle. The beautiful hot metal branded lids are blended (much like a fine whisky) with the aged staves and scorched interiors, all machined to produce a consistent and usable flooring block or batten yet still full of the character and (quite literally) flavour of its whisky barrel origins.

Our unique Whisky Barrel Cobbles are a very distinctive feature for decorating walls.
