Innerstave invented the new barrel oak alternatives industry in 1979. Since that time, by listening to the changing tastes of our customers and through constant innovation, we have remained the industry leader.
Innerstave is driven by the singular goal of assisting winemakers, brewers and distillers to achieve the new barrel oak flavor characteristics they seek by bringing oak to the beverage. Our oak flavor profile consultants are unsurpassed in their knowledge. Our convection oven toasting and premium oak sourcing allow us to create oak flavor profiles that are complex as well as consistent, year after year.
Oak flavor profiles found nowhere else on earth
Innerstave seasons our American and French oak products in our dedicated seasoning and toasting yard located in Sonoma, California’s Carneros wine region. Our close proximity to San Francisco Bay’s water, wind and fog offers a microflora found nowhere else on earth, making our premium oak flavor profiles distinctive and unique.
