Scott Laboratories Announces New Distribution of Amorim’s New Xpür Portfolio of Micro-Granulated Corks 


SCOTT Laboratories logoJanuary 20th – Amorim Cork’s continuous commitment to research and development has resulted in the launch of the most advanced technology available in the micro-granulated cork closures segment. With the unveiling of Xpür® technology earlier 2021 – a more efficient and sustainable supercritical  CO2 process of treating cork granulates – Amorim is now offering an enhanced range of micro granulated closures that will set new performance and quality standards for winemakers  worldwide. 

Scott Laboratories’ commitment to providing best-in-class products, technical expertise, and a  fierce dedication to customer success, coupled with their 80+ year record of being one of the  most trusted suppliers to the North American wine community, made them an obvious  distribution partner for Amorim’s newest line of micro-granulated cork products. This unique  partnership between Scott Labs and Amorim was developed with the customer in mind, allowing  wineries to have access to two different product lines that benefit from Xpür® technology.  Neutrocork Premium® and Qork® from Amorim are now part of the range of cork and wine  closure offerings from Scott Labs.  

In response to an increase in market demand for high quality, long lasting, efficient micro granulated closures, this partnership will increase the reach and accessibility to top-of-the-line  products from both companies. By collectively bringing to market a truly innovative and cutting edge solution, Scott Labs and Amorim remain committed to helping solve the enological needs  and challenges of North American winemakers and producers. 

Pedro Fernandes, General Manager of Amorim Cork America, commented: “This is a unique  opportunity for two long standing organizations to partner and continue to promote cork as the  preferred solution for wines in the North American market. The Xpür® technology is a  breakthrough technology for cleaning granulated cork while preserving the intrinsically physical and mechanical characteristics of the cork itself. Both Neutrocork Premium® and Qork® offer a  variety of solutions that we believe will address a wide range of producers.”  

Chris Holman, General Manager of Scott Labs’ Packaging department, comments: “We are  extremely excited to partner with the experts at Amorim on such high-quality, game-changing  products for the cork and closures market. Scott Labs’ commitment to sustainability is mirrored  in both these product lines with their negative CO2 balance and energy consumption, combined  with natural ingredients. Our goal is to provide best-in-class closures to our customers so they  can choose which closure best fits their wines. One size doesn’t fit all, and we’re here to help  them navigate the best available choices on the market backed by the latest technology and  technical expertise.”
