AZTI-Tecnalia has confirmed the ability of Articube technology to chill drinks and ice in seconds.
Articube technology can chill drinks down to -55°C and ice down to -70°C ice in seconds, as certified by the AZTI-Tecnalia Food Research Unit. Sensory testing carried out in the laboratories at the technology centre have further shown that Articube improves the taste, aroma, temperature in the mouth, look of the glass and the overall appeal of popular cocktails.
AZTI-Tecnalia has verified that this technology can keep the temperature of a gin and tonic 50% cooler for at least 40 minutes compared to a conventional glass and ice. Ice cubes treated with Articube take much longer too melt consequently less water mixes in with the drink, which helps to keep the original flavour of the blend. In specific terms, melting is reduced by 50% after the first 10 minutes and 40% after 40 minutes, with respect to untreated ice.
