The DS100 TALIS bartop with a natural cork shank is our most premium cork closure for spirits. The natural cork shanks are carefully selected and the DS100 service gives these corks the maximum guarantee of sensory neutrality. Every DS100 cork is screened by our panel of trained sensory specialists to ensure that the corks are free of TCA* and any other off aroma, making these corks truly unique in the market.
DS100 consists of a non-destructive and non-invasive analysis that is carried out by a panel of trained sensory specialists. The panel analyze 100% of the corks in a lot and reject any cork with a sensory deviation due to TCA or other off-aromas.
After the corks have been in a controlled environment for 24 hours, the corks are analyzed sequentially by three different trained sensory specialists. Should one of the panelists detect TCA or another off-aroma in any single cork, the cork is rejected and removed from the lot.
