Cooperage

Greenless Brothers' cooperage in Osborne Street, c 1890.

The firm employed a large team of coopers to manufacture and repair oak casks for whisky. Special steam machinery was installed to season the wood, as the quality of the casks plays an important role in the development of the character and flavour of the whisky it contains.
