Torrent Group set itself the challenge of developing bartops in order to meet the specific needs our customers and markets. Our professional trajectory has been one of continuous improvement and innovation has been a crucial factor for our company becoming a leader in the non-refillable closure sector. The premium customized closures that adapt to the brand and packaging of our customers’ products are the best example of this.

Customised premium closures adjusted to the needs of our customers

By using the finest materials, such as cork and microgranulate, or the most versatile, such as zamak, and the safest, such as polymer, the possibilities of creating a customized closure solution following the product branding requirements are endless.

In such a competitive market, bartops bring an added value to the branding of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and spirits. Our Innovation and Development department is trendsetting. We combine aesthetics, safety, design and functionality in our customized closures. With our bartops, the marketing of spirits, beverages and EVOO delivers excellence through exclusivity.

The Bartop is a closure that ensures the quality of liqueurs and spirits

Our line of high-quality BarTop closures, tailor-made for each project, meet the fundamental requirements of our company’s mission: safety, sustainability and the relentless pursuit of improving the consumer experience.

Characteristics of BarTop closures:

  • The closure’s shank is the part of the closure that is in contact with the liquid. It must therefore be prepared to withstand the highest demands. 
  • At Torrent Closures, we produce BarTop closures made only from microgranulated natural cork. We oversee the entire cork disinfection process and we use all the material in the form of cork powder. In addition, and thanks to the production process, we do not generate waste when it comes to adjusting the final cut of the closures. This is therefore a 100%-sustainable closure.

Therefore, we guarantee an improved option for the traditional cork closures through the use of micro-granulated cork powder. This material provides multiple benefits. By optimizing the consumption of material, the result obtained is finer.

And how do we do it? The natural microgranulation preserves the organoleptic quality of liqueurs and spirits because it maintains the positive properties of a fine, natural and renewable material such as natural cork. Its advantage lies in its ability to counter some disadvantages (TCA, low productivity, porosity and the impossibility of adapting the product, amongst others). The part of the cork that is in contact with liquors, spirits and wine is the most important because it keeps the product in good condition.

As we have stated, our microgranulated closure guarantees:

  1. Exhaustive TCA monitoring of the cork grain and the finished closure through a system developed by Torrent. No unwanted smells and tastes
  2. No cork particles sediment, which can occur with natural cork
  3. No dust particles sediment, as we disinfect the grain and the cork
  4. It’s a sustainable product
  5. All the closures work the same mechanically, as we control their density one by one, closure by closure, to prevent flaws
  6. It is made entirely in-house, in the Alcornocales Natural Park, and therefore supports the circular economy

On the other hand, the crown of the BarTop closure, which is the upper end of the closure, consists of a capsule that can be made of wood, bio-based polymer, metal (aluminium), porcelain, glass or other fine materials. The closure’s crown is a unique, customer-specific design. In fact, in the Earth Range, the cork is visible and takes on a key visual and aesthetic role by having a larger crown. At Torrent Closure, parts are put together without glue and the crown does not have any ink. Plus, in the event that the closure requires special decoration, this is done with a laser, instead of the widely used solvent ink.

The sum of all these parts is a closure solution that is:

  • 100%-Sustainable. That means being responsible for the environment in terms of reusing waste.
  • Safe: The use of Microgranulate means that the product is not contaminated. Therefore, it guarantees the quality of the products with which it is used in the food sector.
  • Functionality for the user: opening the container is convenient. Care is taken with product packaging, value added and the customer’s requirements and needs met.
