We provide an analytical service which supplies confirmation of congeners present in whiskey samples by Gas Chromatography (GC) in order to provide insights into the background of various organoleptic properties.
Our chromatograms show the presence of methanol, the fusel alcohols and additional congeners of new make and matured spirits.

Customer testimonial: “Maynooth University went above and beyond to deliver analyses to us. We needed analyses at short notice and the team at Maynooth University turned these around in record-time, meaning that samples needed for a trade mission got through customs without a hitch. Expedient and professional – I would absolutely recommend them.”
