Amidst a youth obsessed culture, McGinnis Wood Products age gracefully. The company manufactures wine and whiskey barrels and staves (strips for a barrel's sides). Initially making staves for barrelmakers, McGinnis transitioned to distillery and wine barrels in 1987. McGinnis produces some 25,000 barrels and hogsheads a year. The cooperage sells to wine and spirits makers worldwide. White oak from the Ozarks, as well as oak from Illinois and Kentucky, is used to make its barrels, with select woods imported to serve international preferences. The lineup includes blocks of rough staves, circled heading, and kiln-dried, jointed, and bent staves, sold to other barrelmakers. Leroy McGinnis owns and runs the company.
