Q: Hi again,
I don't have a corker....so, I'm wondering how long the tapered cork will hold if the bottles are standing upright....longer than the tasting corks?
I guess I'm trying to find out what the best cork would be for storage (though not extremely long term) without having a corker?!
Thank you again!
A: The tapered corks can be pushed in by hand as much as possible to seat them but again, would not allow a completely airtight seal. If dealing with a spirit that is less prone to oxidation as compared to wine, that would spoil or degrade much faster, would not be a concern. If using for a wine, liquor with added sugars or another beverage that would spoil if not sealed over time, purchasing a corker and the straight corks to seal would be the best bet
Just making sure: I have 750 ml bottles for wine/tequila with opening diameter of 3/4" inside / 1" outside. I'm thinking the #9 tapered cork will work...correct? And, I'm assuming these are okay for wine and tequila, yes? Thanks!
A: These would be the proper cork if the opening is 3/4" t these corks are menth to act as a stopper and not an airtight or lqiuid tight seal. A stright cork in the #9 size appled with a hand held or benhc mounted corker would give a better closure on item ID 24-4062
