American Oak Cubes

  • $5.99

120g (4.25 oz) per bag

Add to any wine, beer, or spirit to enhance the toasted oak flavour.

Much easier and economical than oak barrels and yet provides most of the same results. Less filtering and clean up issues than chips.

Adding oak during and after fermentation can deliver hints of vanilla, toffee, nuttiness and tannins while improving overall aroma and flavour complexity. Oak also improves age-ability, and will help make your wine, beer or spirit even more appealing and closer to their commercial counterpart.

Various levels of toasting (which refers to heating level or char to the wood) will offer various levels of complexity as well. 

Light Char tends to add softer tannins and a subtle oak character for those delicate wines (or other beverages).

Medium Char tends to provide notes of vanilla, caramel, toasted bread, all spice and tannins.

Heavy (dark) Char tends to produce flavours and aromas reminiscent of coffee and chocolate while adding firm tannins.

Blending Oaks will add combinations of these characteristics.  

These Premium American oak cubes are ideal for secondary during fermentation as Oak cubes offer a slower, more complex extraction of flavours. This makes them ideal for longer durations of contact with your wine, beer or spirit.

Using Oak Cubes instead of chips allows for easy filtering or siphoning and are great for a simple cleanup.
