Our Custom Aging Platform tailors the oak profiles and flavors to mirror the complexities of the traditional barrel aging process
Our Custom Aging Platform is a multi-faceted approach that tailors the oak profiles and flavor characteristics to accentuate the sophisticated complexities of the aging process. Key variable seasoning is an integral part of the Custom Aging Platform™. This utilizes Fiber Infusion Technology™ (F.I.T.™) to achieve a full cell molecular infusion of a desired profiles deep into the fibers of the wood. Quickly and efficiently mirroring the characteristics and profiles oak develops after years of aging a wine or spirit. These products are often used when failure is not an option; Building specific profiles and complexities within the wood, while avoiding the unknown variables that come with traditional aging programs.
Seasoning with F.I.T.™ allows for an advective mass transfer of character properties into the fibers of the wood while simultaneously bringing forward tannins and compounds deep within the oak. These products not only contribute the natural compounds within the wood, but they also allow for development of unique profiles resulting from the seasoning process; The best of both worlds.
These processes are built on a foundation of three main values; Quality, Consistency, and Control. Three key factors typically unpredictable with conventional aging platforms. The seasoning process uses actual spirits and all natural ingredients; Making marketing and formulas as straightforward and easy as traditional aging.
“With help from the technical support team at Innerstave we were able to round out our Bourbon Barrel Aged Red Wine product out with the infused cubes. While we aged the red wine in a bourbon barrel, it was lacking volume and the flavors were disjointed. The wine was immensely better after the first day of infused cube addition, and the flavor it added was found to be perfect at the 10 day mark. The wine tasted as if it had spent years in the Bourbon barrel, and it melded all the flavors of the wine and the barrel seamlessly, creating a much more premium product than just a barrel alone. Even the distiller was impressed.” -Patric Matysiewski, Sauvage Spectrum Wines
