The Best cork we sell.
Developed for the wine industry to address corkiness, inconsistency, random oxidation and leakage, these corks are made from Suberin*, the purest part of the cork, that is blended with a proprietary polymer which enhances the natural elasticity and sealing properties of the cork. The corks are symmetrical and totally natural in appearance.
*Suberin is a waterproofing waxy substance found in higher plants. Suberin is a main constituent of cork and is named after the cork oak, Quercus suber. Its main function is as a barrier to movement of water and solutes.
