The Yambol Wine Barrel Maker's Shop

This is the local Yambol wine barrel maker's shop, or the Yambol cooper as the professional is technically known. Not only used for wine I might add, but rakia. I don't use them myself as my own wine and rakia get drunk within the year of making, although many Bulgarians store their rakia in these barrels for years improving with age from the wood infusion. Also the cost of these barrels are far to expensive compared to the 2/3/5 or 10 litres plastic containers most use here for storing wine and rakia.
