Both whiskey and wine barrels can be used in all of the same ways, and for all of the same DIY projects!
When deciding between the two, the decision typically comes down to your preference on appearance, or simply your preference for whiskey or wine as a beverage!
The whiskey barrels inherently have a more rustic character and appeal. The wine barrels retain a cleaner, lighter, and newer look, and often have light red wine stains throughout.
Either way, you can't go wrong!
