WHY Wine Stix® and BeerStix™ WORKS

Both products are milled in a way that exposes short grain and long grain in the same piece of wood.

The shape is unique in that it gives the impact of oak flavors to the wine as in “short grain wood”, allowing less pieces of wood, and at the same time gives a more complex extraction of flavors due to the “long grain wood”;  like the wooden barrel does.

Because of the Wine Stix® and BeerStix™  milling  there is  gradient toasting in Light, Medium, Medium Plus and Burgundy level.

Gradient toasting is the only way to preserve the delicate, volitive sugars in Oak. This is exactly what takes place in the barrel making process.

This complexity acquired with our products are the closest Oak Alternative being made to replicate the flavor profiles of a Wooden Barrel.
