A wood floor company in Glasglow has devised a way to make flooring from the oak wood of whiskey barrels.
At McKay Flooring in the UK, orders are starting to pour in for their unique floors made from whiskey barrel wood, each one distinct in character and in many cases with the whiskey branding still in tact. They take the oak wood from the barrels and first make flat boards out of it, then 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.
