Every year, over 2 billion Diam corks are sold, so chances are you will now and then pull one out of your wine bottle. Diam Bouchage is a French company that 12 years ago introduced a technical invention that eliminates the molecule responsible for the annoying cork taste (2,4,6-trichloroanisole, TCA) from cork granules. Diam could thus start selling agglomerated corks with zero risks of cork taste.

Diam now sells a new cork called Origine by Diam, an environmentally friendly cork that recently won a prestigious award in Milan, the “SIMEI Technology Innovation Award”. Origine by Diam uses a binder that is 100% plant-based and an emulsifying agent made from beeswax. The use of beeswax is one of the company’s environmental projects. Diam Bouchage sponsors hives in various French wine regions. Look for the name Diam on the cork the next time you open a bottle.
