AGED SPIRITS SHOULD HAVE

SUBLIME SMOOTHNESS

WITH BAGS OF FLAVOR

Using WLT 150 has major benefit to all distillers. WLT 150 can help deliver an end-product that is smooth and easy on the palate whilst retaining the complexities and underlying character of the spirit – without the harsh and abrasive edge that comes with young alcohols.

BARREL COST

COST : $0.50 -$4/liter

The cost to mature spirits increases annually. Barrels are becoming more and more expensive. This is leading distillers to use older, less effective barrels to mature their spirits and retain the barrel tradition without the added cost of additional barrel purchases. WLT 150 can augment existing barrel replacement strategies.

COST : $0.50 -$4/liter

The cost to mature spirits climbs every year, barrels are becoming more and more expensive, this is leading distillers to use older and older barrels in an attempt to mature their spirits whilst retaining the tradition of doing so. WLT is able to augment an existing barreling replacement strategies.

CAPITAL

COST : $ .5 – $2/liter

Typical product and production related expenses make up a substantial portion of the overall finished product cost in spirits. Tying up product over a 1 – 5-year period not only demands large amounts of capital, but also restricts growth opportunities.

EFFICIENCY

COST : UNKNOWN

The overall processing and batch production cost of barrels is material. The angels share alone accounts for between six and fourteen percent over a three-year-period. The space, complexity, danger, and management of a sizeable barrelling program are equally challenging and costly.

THE REAL COST OF

WOOD AGEING

The real cost of a wood-ageing program is significant. Even in cases where staves, chips, and powders are used, wood-ageing results in high raw material costs and product loss though absorption.. WLT 150 provides a major cost-saving opportunity combined with major efficiency gains

THE REAL COST OF

WOOD AGEING

The real cost of a wood ageing program is significant, even in cases where staves, chips and powders are employed this results in high raw material costs, absorbtion, adsorbtion and in some cases scalping. Production activity is interrupted by mixing and flow through, removal and cleaning. WLT150 provides a major cost saving opportunity combined with major efficiency gains from simple addition, management and production requirements.

TEQUILA – AN AGEING CHALLENGE

Globally, the tequila market has increased by 22 % since 2014, with the ‘premium and above’ price segments captured by the IWSR showing a volume sales increase of 64 %. Tequila is set to continue to outpace industry growth at over 5 % p.a.

Tequila suffers from a spirit that is often bottled quickly, aged rarely, and drunk as a shooter. This is all changing; global demand for spirits such as tequila is evolving fast with consumers demanding a smoother, more complex, and appreciated product. Ageing and maturation is central to this and is seen in the demand and price paid for higher-end products.

Sicario won an international gold award for its Agave Spirit made using WLT 150. It was judged as having complex yet smooth notes desired in a premium spirit.
