About Allary Oak Barrels and Products
The Allary cooperage is a family-owned company founded in 1953 by Mr. Roger Allary. Mr Jacky Allary grew up with French oak in his veins, working in the cooperage and mastering every job. In 1992 he became president of Allary cooperage, and today he continues to closely manage all aspects of the cooperage with a hands-on approach.
Since its creation, the Allary cooperage embodies the best of French “savoir-faire” – the art and the cooperage tradition. The Allary cooperage values ingenuity and is progressive; always meeting the demands of diverse clientele. Top of the range is the goal for all Allary oak barrel and wood alternative products.
In the sixties, the cooperage worked especially for the region of Cognac, but quickly grew. By the nineties, Mr. Allary had a full range of products, specialising in the manufacturing of barrels, puncheons and oak fermentation vats for both the wine and cognac industry. Mr. Allary also launched an “Artisan Cooperage” with a full range of products including small barrels from 1L, 5L, and 10L up to 110L. In 1995, the Allary cooperage opened itself to new horizons by beginning its export business. Today, they have exports to 30 countries.
Customer satisfaction is a key component to the Allary philosophy of doing business.With both progression and customers in mind, Allary is among the very few cooperages to have earned the ISO 22000:2005 certificate implementing a strict safety and food management procedure followed by every Allary employee.
