Natural Cork, Natural Quality


We pride ourselves on supplying our customers with premium quality natural corks. This starts with sourcing the finest materials from our suppliers, all of which are sanitised and washed to the highest of standards.


To ensure the highest quality cork, we collaborate with the best cork growers. The freshly harvested cork planks are filtered for superiority, cut into strips, hand-punched to maximise material use and then modified in design to ensure consistency. This process enables us to maintain complete control. All the excess material is ground up and used for agglomerate corks which means we are able to reduce waste and recycle what we use.


The cork is always fully sanitised. By using a closed chamber system, the cork planks are boiled at 105°C under high pressure so that they receive prolonged pressurised steam. This process removes cork taint, off-aromas and tannins. Thanks to this rigorous process, our customers can rest assured that the corks are always neutral and benefit from improved appearance and elasticity.


Our system naturally washes the finished corks using ozone and hydrogen peroxide. This highly advanced process further reduces any organic impurities and off-flavours. With three different washing options – colouring the corks a natural, light brown or white appearance – the cleansing process ensures neutral flavour and consistent colour.
