Superior medium roasted French Oak staves cut. Infuse Oak in wine or distilled spirits for flavour and colour.

Two ways of getting the most of your wood chips:

1. Infuse a stave (i.e. 1-2g per liter spirits) in your spirits until it develops your preferred level of "woodiness". Then remove the stave and bottle your spirits.

2. Fill a bottle about 3/4 full with strong neutral spirits (i.e. at 80% abv). Infuse for a few weeks in a warm area (but not direct sunlight). Thereafter use this "wood extract" to "instantly mature" your spirits.

Tips:

There is no "right or wrong" quantities or specific periods to infuse the wood chips.

1. The higher the temperature - the quicker the extraction of the woody aromas.

2. The stronger the alcohol - the quicker

3. The more chips you use - the quicker

4. The smaller the wood chips - the quicker

5. First use the color as a guide and then on regular intervals, nose and taste the product until you've reached your preferred level of "woodiness"
