Title (EN) MATURATION CONTAINER FOR SPIRITS AND METHOD OF CONSTRUCTING SAME
(FR) CONTENEUR DE MATURATION POUR SPIRITUEUX ET PROCÉDÉ DE CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A maturation container and method of maturing spirits that incorporates a polymeric material (10) into a wall of the container. The material (10) is preferably Polylactic Acid (PLA) which has known oxygen permeation properties suited to maturation but is substantially impermeable to ethanol. Use of such a material is proposed to supplement or replace traditional wooden barrel methods of storage.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un conteneur de maturation et un procédé de maturation de spiritueux qui incorpore un matériau polymère (10) dans une paroi du conteneur. Le matériau (10) est de préférence de l'acide polylactique (PLA) ayant des propriétés de perméation d'oxygène connues, appropriées à la maturation, mais est sensiblement imperméable à l'éthanol. L'utilisation d'un tel matériau est proposée pour compléter ou remplacer les procédés utilisant les fûts en bois de stockage classiques.
