Barrel spigot...anywhere in Aus?

Postby Chocko6969 » Sun Jul 25, 2021 3:51 pm

Hi all, just wondering if anyone can source a couple of these in Australia because for the life of me I'm stuffed if I can find any!
I don't really want to spend $50 on one, would rather put that towards a whole barrel to be honest.

I'm probably a bit guilty of skipping over the obvious on Goggle but I'll own up to it...any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Chocko.

Thanks bluc, I don't have any of these as yet, I'm looking to replace a brass tap and install on another barrel that isn't tapped.

Update, found another in UK, about 30pnd for 3 taps, and 132pnd shipping, I would have thought they'd be screaming to fill up planes!

You may be able to find a local cooperage that does small barrels that uses wooden taps?
