  • [2/1/2023—If you are planning a birectifier purchase for 2024, feel free to email me. The price is going down but I cannot commit to a number yet, and we are figuring out a way to reduce the lead time. I’m also figuring out a way to incorporate fun discounts; send me a bottle of your spirit and I’ll give you a discount!]

It has been a year packed with birectifier case studies and exploration. If you’re interested in purchasing a birectifier, feel free to email me directly to set it up (birectifier (at) gmail (•) com). The second link below is a few very articulate writings from Arroyo himself about the value of the tool.

I have performed quite a lot of case studies. What is surprising is how incredible the device works for aromatized products. Chartreuse was a revelation. Gin is incredible. The birectifier will certainly help people out that are developing a broad portfolio. There is a universality to its concepts. Case studies will also eventually aid in marketing.
