The barrel is produced out of kiri wood in our cooperage.
Kiri wood is a highly aromatic wood with considerable cellulose and lignin content.
Paired with heat-reduced toast, this ensures a significant splitting of the sugar molecules on the surface of the wood while at the same time preventing guaiacol smoke aromas.
The result are wooden barrels that offer strong flavours in the form of sweetness, vanilla and fruit when matured with distillates, wines or beers.
Our production of kiri wood barrels is another one of our innovative ideas. Widely unknown, the kiri is a cherry tree originating from Asia and is the fastest growing tree in the world. German innovation companies are now also planting this special tree under optimal growth conditions. Growing up to 5 metres per year, the kiri tree produces wood at 10 times the rate of oak. Although the production of kiri barrels is still in its very early stages, they could in the future be a complement to barrels made from more widely known woods.
The wood comes from sustainable cultivation and is both air and kiln dried.
