Commonly Asked Questions
Our aged turpentine has been naturally aged through exposure to sunlight and air. This natural oxidation process results in a beautiful reddish coloration, a slightly more viscous consistency, and a slightly more aromatic “bouquet” than our regular turpentine. We actually put this product on the market at the request of our customers who were needing aged turpentine in their wood varnishes.
A vast majority of the turpentine and rosin being sold in the United States today is imported from Asia or South America, or is a by-product of the Kraft pulp and paper industry. Despite their labels, these products may or may not be 100% pure. Our products, however, are made from raw pine gum (sap) derived from slash pine trees (pinus elliottii) growing in south Georgia, USA, using sustainable forest practices. Unlike huge corporations, our products are not mass-produced. Every product is packaged and labeled by hand. Attention to detail is paramount in our business, and we hope that our products and our service reflect our passion for what we do and the people we serve.
