Australia’s Premier Cooperage

  • Underwritten by Tradition
  • Evolving through Innovation
  • Driven by Customers

The John family settled in South Australia’s world renowned Barossa Valley in the 1840s.
Since then five generations of the family have continued an unbroken connection with the viticulture, winemaking and coopering industries within the Barossa.

Today under the direction of Peter John the cooperage offers a unique range of French, American and Hungarian Barrels, an extensive portfolio of oak additive and a bespoke range of distillery casks for the burgeoning spirit industry.

Our local AP John sales team are close at hand to provide additional information and work collaboratively with you to create your next exceptional drop.
