CROSS CUT STAVES FLAVOR SPIRITS 8X FASTER
SPIRITS PENETRATE A TRADITIONAL FLAT WOOD STAVE AS DEEP AS 1/2 THE THICKNESS OF A HUMAN HAIR EVERY 7 DAYS
That's 1.97 thousandth of an inch every 7 days. And that's good, that's why we like building barrels from oak, it's sturdy and the wood seals up nicely.
LOOK AT THOSE PEAKS!
This Gas Chromatograph shows the chemical compounds created from distillation and barrel time.
Squarrel’s components are similar to those found in a traditional barrel. Both the Squarrel barrel and the traditional barrel allow for micro-oxygenation so both barrels released similar compounds.
We work with Beyers Analytical Lab in Fort Collins, CO, to analyze and compare Squarrel aged products to traditionally aged products. Please reach out for more details, we'd be happy to share more GCs, diagrams and research papers!
And if you're interested in conducting some of your own experiments, you've got to check this lab out. They're great.
