Proprietary Profiling Technology

Wood is composed of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and oak tannins. As the oak is heated during toasting, these compounds break down, releasing desirable aroma, flavors and color. Our proprietary barrel profiling technology manages time and temperature combinations during toasting to create variety and consistency.

How It Works

When a barrel arrives at the toasting area it is scanned into the computer system to pull up the selected toasting profile.

An oak fire is prepared in the toasting pot which has a temperature sensor linked to the computer system. This advanced system monitors and compares the actual toast temperature to the target temperature.

The cooper keeps the actual and target temperatures as close as possible throughout the cycle. To follow the toasting curve, coopers will increase the temperature by adding pieces of oak to the fire or decrease the temperature by administering droplets of water.

Every toasting profile is recorded and evaluated for accuracy.

It's time to find your profile.
