Distilleries have always used the terms barrel and cask interchangeably to mean hollow containers, with a cylindrical shape that bulges at the center.

Barrels are made primarily of wooden staves with the integration of wood, metal rings, or metal hoops to hold the wooden staves tightly together. Their primary function is to store whiskeys during aging and add flavor and aroma into the whiskey during the aging period.
