Building a Solera system
Solera is a process for aging liquids such as wine, beer, vinegar, and brandy, by fractional blending in such a way that the finished product is a mixture of ages, with the average age gradually increasing as the process continues over many years. The purpose of this labor-intensive process is the maintenance of a reliable style and quality of the beverage over time.
At Aurora Spirit Distillery we have now (march 2021) invested in 25 pcs. of 30 year old ex sherry bodega solera casks, with a capacity of 500 l. each. The casks were bought from a cooperage in Jerez, Spain.
