Sustainability is a fashion statement that never goes out of style. For men who care for the environment and appreciate the timelessness of a wooden wristwatch, Whiskey Barrel is the perfect eco-friendly time-keeping companion
You get to wear an old oak barrel on your wrist – and look dapper with it.
How cool is that?
Handmade in the USA, Whiskey Barrel is a unique timepiece fashioned from sustainable wood and stainless steel. Original Grain goes through painstaking lengths to preserve the character ingrained in every piece of wood. Each watch is then made by hand, using traditional woodworking techniques. That means no two watches are ever the same.
The wood is displayed on the bezel as well as on the wristband. The organic but sleek design is completed with Japanese Miyota Quartz movement and a scratch-resistant mineral crystal glass encasing the face.
Whiskey Barrel is sustainable and stylish. It’s also designed for everyday wear. That makes this American-made watch an incredible addition to every eco-conscious man’s wardrobe.
Each handcrafted timepiece is made from reclaimed and recycled American oak bourbon barrels. Created using 100% natural wood and age-old woodworking techniques, the watch is a perfect symbol of eco-luxury.
Original Grain is as passionate about saving Mother Nature and helping marginalised communities as they are about their craft. They partner with Trees for the Future, a non-profit environmental organisation that provides jobs for farmers in Africa. When you purchase a Whiskey Barrel watch, one tree is planted in Senegal.
Original Grain designs watches that aren’t only fashionable and unique, but also sustainable.
Inspired by their Pacific Northwest origins, brothers Ryan and Andrew Beltran set out on a mission to make one-of-a-kind timepieces from all-natural wood and stainless steel.

Whiskey Barrel is made from 100% natural wood sourced from Kentucky, home of America’s spirit – bourbon. Each watch is made from the remnants of reclaimed American oak barrels, which are known for their strength and durability. These barrels were once used to store bourbon for up to four years. Handcrafted with care, using age-old woodworking techniques, Original Grain provides an eco-friendly option in a world where items are mostly made of plastic and metal.
