Fiber Infusion TechnologyTM

Fiber Infusion TechnologyTM is part of our accelerated Custom Aging Platform. To make a long scientific explanation short, we use selected barrels to rapidly age a spirit or solution of your choice. To clarify, this is not a “soak”. F.I.T.TM creates an advective mass transfer of profiles, allowing the oak to pick up the desired spirit profiles, while not losing its own tannins and profiles. This process mirrors months or years of aging and uses a much smaller amount of product.

Breweries all over North America take advantage of our Custom Aging Platform to diversify their barrel programs and meet increased demand. One of our largest projects included 200 gin seasoned bourbon barrels, used by Stone & Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. for their NxS IPA Collaboration last summer. Additional benefits also include our Barrel Satisfaction Guarantee. This guarantees you’ll receive a healthy, leak free, worry free barrel.
