In 1979, Innerstave initiated a paradigm shift in the wine industry by bringing premium new barrel oak flavor to wine through oak alternatives. Winemakers were freed from needing to rely solely on new oak barrels to achieve the oak flavor profiles they desired. Since that time, Innerstave has continued to partner with winemakers, brewers and distillers around the world to shape the taste of fine wine, beer and spirits.
Winemakers have used our products for decades to expand their oak spice rack flavor profiles, as well as reduce new barrel cooperage expenses. More recently, craft beer makers and spirits distillers are taking advantage of our premium oak products and oak flavor profile consulting services to create singularly unique beverages.
