Analytical tests conducted on alcoholic beverages are crucial for ensuring their quality, safety, and compliance with regulatory standards, for beer, wine, spirits, and other fermented beverages. Prairie Tide delivers comprehensive assessments to ensure the highest quality standards and meet regulatory requirements.

Our Alcoholic Beverage Testing Includes:


Determination of the ethanol (alcohol) concentration in the beverage.


Visual inspection and spectrophotometric analysis to determine the color, clarity, and visual appeal of the beverage.


Identification and quantification of volatile compounds responsible for aroma and flavor, often analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) or headspace analysis.


Screening for potential contaminants or residues from production processes, such as pesticides, heavy metals, or cleaning agents.


Testing for the presence of allergenic substances, such as sulfites or gluten, to ensure compliance with labeling requirements and protect consumers with specific dietary restrictions.


Assessing various quality parameters such as acidity, ester content, and sugar levels to ensure consistency and adherence to product specifications.


Determinations for Certificates of analysis (CoA’s) and to comply with some state regulations on nutritional labelling.

Prairie Tide is a provider of proactive testing for SLGA and LCBO in Saskatchewan and Ontario, and is certified to provide COA’s to meet regulatory requirements for your alcoholic beverages.
