Ahhh, a sauna that I don’t have to share with half a dozen other sprawled out and sweaty dudes at the gym (dudes who, counterintuitively to the entire point of a sauna, insist on playing games and music on their phones while they’re in there. Like, EDM and Bollywood. Without earbuds). That this sauna is also shaped like a whiskey barrel only makes Almost Heaven’s 2-person hot box that much closer on the almost scale to heaven.
The 60″ barrel and its interior benches are American-made of Western Canadian Red Cedar. So too is the canopy on the sauna’s exterior, which provides a covered circular porch for use as a cool-down area and protected place to set towels and drinks. A 4.5kw stainless steel Finnish-style heater stirs the sweat glands and has a built-in 8-hour delay timer for scheduled heating. Additional accents, including bands, hinges, and hardware, are also made of stainless steel.
Almost Heaven ships its Barrel Sauna to you and your favorite detox mate as a partially assembled kit, which should take 3 or so hours to put together.
