Posted on August 04, 2020

Petaluma, California – August 4, 2020 – Scott Laboratories, the leading supplier of packaging, equipment, filtration and fermentation products for the North American wine industry, is excited to announce the launch of their Scott PromiseTM program for all cork products purchased on or after October 1, 2020.

Due to the overwhelming success of ScottPlusTM and the revolutionary technology behind their Dry- Steam process, Scott Labs is now able to offer the Scott Promise program.

Scott Promise: 100% clean cork or Scott Labs will buy the bottle back. Every cork, every day, at no additional cost to the customer. Winemakers can have confidence that their wine is protected, and quality is preserved with 100% clean cork purchased from Scott Labs. That’s the Scott Labs way of doing business.

Scott Labs is the only independent North American- owned cork company. They were the first to bring Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) testing to the North American Wine Industry and the first to use So2 to protect natural cork. Earlier this year they released ScottPlus Dry-Steam Natural Cork which was the first cork product to combine the unique two- step process of Individual Inspection with Dry-Steam technology.

Through their independence and continuous innovation, Scott Labs can source the best cork available and provide the best treatments available to ensure success. Now, with the upcoming launch of their Scott Promise program, Scott Labs will be the first to validate 100% treated, tested and clean cork for their entire inventory – whether you purchase natural cork, 1+1, micro, champagne or otherwise. 

Scott Labs’ mission is to advance the long-term success of the specialty beverage community by providing best-in-class products and services. They believe in:

  • Education: Scott Labs has partnered with ETS Laboratories to conduct in-depth validation studies for their cork products in an ongoing effort to continue educating themselves, their customers, and the market on new research and findings, to produce the highest quality cork.
  • Honesty: Scott Promise includes all cork purchased from Scott Labs, because they believe in being open and transparent with their customers and honest about the quality of their product portfolio.
  • Doing the right thing: Scott Labs is the first cork supplier in the industry to promise 100% satisfaction with a bottle buy-back at no additional charge in the spirit of doing right by their customers.

For over 80 years, Scott Laboratories has been providing the best customer experience to the specialty beverage community.
