SA Cooperage was founded in 1987 by Ray Dobson and Roger Deves. Initially focused on reworking barrels for the wine industry the cooperage evolved into new barrel production throughout the 90’s. The cooperage has maintained a small loyal following of wine producers for both French and American Oak barrels coopered in Australia. Master Cask has recently purchased the cooperage retaining the expertise of both Ray and Roger along with a qualified and highly skilled team of coopers including Ray’s son Mark. Whilst demand from the emerging spirits industry initially created the opportunity for Master Cask and SA Cooperage to work together, Master Cask’s supply partners have supported an opportunity to develop a complementary barrel program with supply of premium oak through the Sylvain Group and Kelvin Cooperage.
