At From the Floors Up, we LOVE to hear about great floor sightings – but we also LOVE to hear about inventive and creatively recycled floors. This news, reaches the top of our favorites list.
Did you know? A whisky cask, once it has reached the end of its natural life, normally ends up adorning a garden lawn or, worse, at the foot of a landfill.
Now however there is a new more worthy final destination for the humble cask once it has matured its last drop of whisky thanks to the efforts of a Glasgow-based flooring firm.
McKay flooring have engineered a method that enables the oak planks of barrels to be straightened out so that they be used as sheet flooring.
The flooring, according to its makers, retains a mild aroma of vanilla with many of the barrels still displaying distillery markings.
The company has received orders from orders from the bar and restaurant trade with interest also coming from whisky enthusiasts from around the world.
