LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 1, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- California-based Lost Spirits LLC has built a new type of chemical reactor capable of making aged spirits with a near identical chemical signature to 20 year old barrel aged products. The new reactors are compact, portable, and will be deployed to 5 distilleries in a beta-test this summer. Currently, there are several patents pending that cover their approach.

While rapid aging of spirits is not a new idea, the Lost Spirits method is the first to accomplish a near identical chemical signature to a similar product aged conventionally for decades. The project has built on more than 5 years of research and investment to develop the approach that finally succeeded.

"Our compact reactors combine a series of alternative aging approaches, taking the best parts of each and then tuning them using gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy to clone the natural effects of age on a spirit," says Bryan Davis the inventor of the new technology.

He adds, "The end result offers a 98 percent to 99 percent reduction in evaporation losses and a near perfect match to the semi-volatile organic fingerprint of the traditionally aged product. The reactors offer an average 6-day turn around time from fresh white spirit to the shelf, and no chemical additives are involved in the process."

"The new technology will allow us to reshape the industry. As a consequence, expect prices to fall and quality to rise dramatically."

After completing the beta-test cycle, the team anticipates being able to fabricate 50 reactors per year. Empirical evidence to support the claims was published this morning under the science heading at

The results of the project were made public yesterday at the American Distilling Institute Conference, in Louisville, Kentucky.

Lost Spirits is an engineering company dedicated to understanding and manipulating the production of mature distilled spirits. The company has filed several patent applications based on manipulating the spirits aging process. The company also owns a small distillery in California which functions as a test site for their projects. Learn more at:
