The barrels, made of aged white oak and as old as 100 years, were shipped to Portland from the Bushmills distillery in Ireland, where they were broken down and transformed into stylish shades. I have to dock points for the impact of transporting wood from Europe to the West Coast, but at least it was a well used product destined to be reused, and in a really cool way.
