    Default Coopers!

    I've passed this quite a few times,in Canal st.by Millers bridge,but didn't take much notice,till I realised that there can't be many places left,making barrels/kegs, by hand! A dying craft?

    A dying craft? No, that would be dying, not Coopering.

    All whisk(e)y distilleries still (tee-hee) need barrels and get them second-hand from wine/sherry/port etc. makers.

    Though I do not know what industries need the rather unique properties of barrels any more. [the flat-pack aspect]
