Scam Alert Issued for Company Claiming to be in Lexington Selling Bourbon Barrels

Attorney General Andy Beshear issued a Scam Alert after his office and the Better Business Bureau say an online company claiming to be located in Lexington and selling bourbon barrels is scamming customers. claims that “The Oak Wood Barrel Co.” sells bourbon, craft beer, and spirit barrels that are ready to ship worldwide. Three victims, two from out-of-state in Kansas and Virginia, say they paid more than $650 for barrels they did not receive. After receiving the complaints, a Better Business Bureau employee drove to the Lexington address listed on the company’s website and discovered no physical building. The attorney general urges anyone who has fallen victim to the company to contact his office and file a complaint online.
