What Game Did It Play With Time After The Spirits Were Bottled?

Nov. 23, 2019

First, let's talk about the aging concept of liquor products, which is mainly composed of two parts: the aging before bottling, and the aging after bottling. Our company provides upscale glass vodka bottle.

The age before bottling, divided into several categories, western brown liquor is usually aged in oak barrels, western colorless liquor (such as vodka) if aging, in stainless steel containers; In the east, it's more complicated. Chinese baijiu is made from pottery jars, and Japanese soju is made from pottery jars or enamel vats. The purpose of aging before bottling is to adjust the flavor of the wine so that the quality of the wine can reflect the concept of the producer. The laws of various countries also have various norms and standards on the age before bottling. For example, in Scotland, whisky must be aged in oak barrels for more than 3 years.

Moreover, the age of a bottle of wine must be the time it was aged before it was bottled, in the winery's container -- if a bottle of whiskey had been aged for 10 years in oak barrels and 20 years after that, how old would it have been? The answer is 10 years.

The age after bottling, or "bottle aging" as we call it, is mainly consumer behavior: there is no uniform standard, and the law does not restrict it; Different people have different ways of dealing with it. But the reason why bottles aging is because many people believe that the older the wine, the better. But the conventional wisdom is wrong.

Liquor will change when it is bottled, although this change is too weak compared to wine in bottles, but it does not mean it does not exist.

The change in spirits in bottles is caused by oxygen -- each bottle is never fully filled, and the space between the wine's surface and the bottom of the cork retains some air, which allows the liquor to oxidize very slowly. In addition, there is always a small gap between the bottle stopper and the mouth to allow the air to slowly pass through, allowing the steam to escape and slowly reducing the alcohol content in the bottle. These two aspects combine to influence the flavor change of the wine in the bottle.

In addition, temperature, light and other factors will affect the effect of bottle aging.

That's what spirit glass bottle OEM shares.
