Also called 18 imperial gallon casks, 21.6 U.S gallon casks, or half-barrel casks.

Kilderkins are the largest cask size we offer, measuring in at 1/2 of a UK standard 36 Imperial gallon “barrel,” which is equivalent to 10.8 US gallons, or 81.8 liters. All NDL kilderkins are precision-engineered using AISI 304 stainless steel, and we back up our quality claims with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty. Our kilderkins meet all European and North American testing standards and are 100% beverage safe.
