We Buy Logs

Who Do We Buy From?

Speyside Bourbon Cooperage, Inc. purchases American White Oak Stave Logs from sawmills, log yards and independent loggers throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regional area. 

We have Log Buyers in each region who will work with you if you have quality White Oak Stave Logs you wish to sell.

Please refer to the map and contact the Log Buyer in your region for additional information on how to sell your White Oak Stave Logs to us.

Sustainability Principles

We work closely with our suppliers to insure that the American White Oak we purchase is harvested sustainably and that all harvests have been done so with respect to state guidelines for forestry best management practices.

At Speyside Bourbon Cooperage, we care about the long-term health of the forest and a guaranteed, continual source of wood products for future generations.  In addition, by harvesting the forest sustainably, we not only insure the continual growth of trees but also provide availability of food and habitat for wildlife.
