Provides complex, pleasantly mild and delicate toasted oak characters and aromas of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, with a touch of coconut and clove. The flavours provide sweetness, creaminess and roundness to the mouthfeel with a lingering non-aggressive toast character.
Millside Maturation Woods are imported directly from Innerstave in the United States of America.
Innerstave oak barrel alternatives and oak adjuncts have been used for more than forty years by winemakers to expand their oak spice rack flavour profiles. More recently, brewers and distillers have been turning to Innerstave to help them break new ground.
Innerstave’s sourcing of oak trees, along with their proximity to San Francisco Bay’s microflora makes their premium new American oak barrel flavour profiles distinctive and unique. Their oak products are convection oven toasted rather than hand-fired, enabling them to provide exceptionally consistent results for winemakers, brewers and distillers, year after year.
