Justin Gillett 2010

Schmeider's Cooperage & Bundy Kegs operates from the same building that has become famous for making American White Oak casks, suitable for holding spirits and fortified wines. Schmeider's Cooperage began in 1982 and was operated by the Schmeiders. Over this time, the cooperage trained many apprentices and it is now one of these protégé's that owns the business and continues the tradition of Coopering in Bundaberg.

Justin Gillett and his team practice both traditional and modern methods to produce a quality oak cask that will give its owner a lifetime of enjoyment. The casks are produced from new american or french oak as well as wine, fortified & spirit casks that are salvaged from all over the world.

Visitors are always welcome at the Cooperage! 

While at the Cooperage, this unique trade can be watched daily as the Justin and the team work on all sort of products including maybe your own casks.  A large selection of finished kegs, keg furniture and accessories are available in our bar room and our friendly staff are only to pleased to answer any questions about our product or the trade.
