What you need to know about Neutrocorks:
ENOTOOLS sells a closure designed and manufactured at Amorim to stave off oxygen ingress, remain flavor neutral, utilize smaller pieces of closure- grade material, and give the consumer a "real" cork experience.
Meet the Neutrocorks. They truly are amazing. Not in the sense of, "Those shoes look amazing", or, "That coffee was amazing". I mean truly a marvel of closure science and technology in manufacturing that you can afford, and can't afford not to use.
At a cost below $0.09 each for the Standard Neutrocork, and below the $ 0.13 mark for 100% INDIVIDUALLY TESTED and GUARANTEED Neutrocork Premium, the argument against all other types of closures is suddenly heated.
With all of the information out there about them, plastic closures are quite simply, in my (not sure if I can say) humble opinion, a ridiculous choice. That idea can't even stand up to the pressure it takes to get them out of the bottle. And then consider price. They should be free because of the cost to your reputation.
We all like the convenience of a screw cap. But if that isn't enough to justify the hassle of changing bottles, changing bottling equipment, changing your level of concern for ecology, and investing the time it takes to implement the changes, you still have an option. It's called a Neutrocork.
Neutrocorks are made from smaller (yet no less of a gift from Mother Nature) particles left over from the manufacturing of traditional, one- piece natural corks. This material was already closure grade and a small piece of the 29% net from the harvest which makes the cut at Amorim. Have you ever wondered where cork floor, cork insulation, cork gaskets, cork clothing and apparel come from? It was cork that wasn't good enough to be in a beverage.
Neutrocorks work surprisingly well, being 70% cork. See below where it proves very competitive against a screw cap, synthetic, or a higher percentage of plastic product from a competitor; All at a lower cost.
Apparently, the peroxide works.
Quality Control is Amorim's #1 concern. And the two types of Neutrocorks are no exception. Each Standard Neutrocork lot is sampled and tested nine times between the bark and the bag.
Each, INDIVIDUAL Premium Neutrocork is tested with unitized gas spectrometers at Amorim as an overlapping layer of testing for the next level of quality. Folks, we are talking about eliminating that last 0.01% of doubt here. This is important. It means that Amorim's process was already so good that the investment in the equipment and subsequently, risking the added costs of reprocessing substandard product are still worth it to them. These are not expensive closures to begin with. Paying a few cents more for peace of mind is a good decision for some.
A lucky few from each lot of both Standard and Premium Neutrocorks are welcomed to America with a free reception at ETS Labs. There's coffee, donuts and TCA testing.
The extraction force required to remove this closure is one half what is required to remove a traditional synthetic. It's probably harder to get your wallet out of your wife's purse. Their coating is proprietary and specific to the Neutrocork. It provides higher static friction and lower dynamic friction than a standard (Paraffin/Teflon) coating would. They stay in and you can get them out.
There are currently HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of these being used a year around the globe. And there are still plenty to go around. No, seriously. Use all you want. We'll make more!
