Cask Management for Distillers is designed to give distillers of all levels a better understanding of the spirit maturation process. Chapters detail important considerations and concepts such as the effect of wood species on maturation and spirit quality, the chemistry underlying cask aging, the selection of the best casks, and how to manipulate a number of important variables to best achieve your desired spirit profile. Later chapters look at maturation techniques for the world's great spirit types, blending techniques, sensory profiling, and even how to repair the occasionally pesky barrel. Written in a thorough but easy to understand style, Strickland takes the reader on a journey through the oak stands and stave yards to the warehouse and finally the blending room to give one of the most comprehensive explanations of the spirits maturation process put to paper yet.
