Amorim Cork Sparkling Emotions

Cork is the bark of the cork tree (Quercus Suber L), which means that it is 100% natural plant tissue.

Trees may be harvested in cycles of 9 years after the tree’s maturity (25 years). The cork is harvested by specialised professionals, always between May and August, when the tree is at its most active phase of growth and it is easier to strip without damaging the trunk. The cork oak is the only tree whose bark regenerates, acquiring a smoother texture following each harvest. Over the course of its lifetime, which on average lasts 200 years, it may be stripped around 17 times.
