World Cooperage is excited to welcome Glenn Jeffries to the team as our new Barrel Consultant. Glenn will be in charge of crafting partnerships in Sonoma County, Oregon and Canada.
Glenn worked as a chemist for Analytical Sciences in Petaluma, California from 2000 to 2014. In 2008 he began working with closely David Llodra, Cooperages 1912 R&D Director, to improve the methodology surrounding extraction and analysis of oak aromatic compounds for wine and spirits application.
In August 2014 he was hired by Oak Solutions Group, a sister company to Cooperages 1912, as a technical sales engineer for trū/tan oak tannins. Working with winemakers around the world and consulting on their programs, Glenn quickly proved himself a tannin rock-star and was integral in building trū/tan into the successful global brand it is today.
Happy to have you on the team Glenn![/vc_column_text][dt_quote]“Glenn’s previous experience in oak tannins and as an analytical chemist provides a great foundation for success in his new role as a barrel consultant.
