Spirits and alcoholic beverages

Our institute has a long experience in the field of quality assurance of spirits. In addition to the analytical laboratory performance of spirits we also offer the sensorial assessment of the products as well an evaluation of labelling in accordance of German and European law. Our know-how in this field helps you to launch your product. In according to that we are able to advise you in fitting out the right category of spirit drinks as well as the right labelling.

Hereafter you can find an overview of the common parameters for a wine analysis.
For detailed information of the particular parameter klick on the underlined category or parameter, respectively. If you need an analysis of a parameter which you cannot find in the list and also not in the parameter overview please contact us directly, because we are able to analyse much more parameters.
