Scott Laboratories Inc. (USA) and Scott Laboratories Ltd. (Canada) are privately held companies specializing in value added products for the North American wine, craft brewing and distilled spirits industries.
Our predecessor firm (the Berkeley Yeast Laboratory) was literally founded in the weeks prior to the end of Prohibition in 1933. The mission of the new company was to help customers produce better products for THEIR customers. Value added was a core principal then. It remains a core value seven and a half decades later.
Our first products were lab services and yeast. In the years that followed the needs of our industry customers led us first to cellar supplies, then to packaging and finally into processing and bottling equipment. It has been a 77 year evolution driven by the concept of adding value.
Our current product portfolios include some of the most famous names in the wine, craft brewing and spirits industries. In some cases we have our own proprietary products (such as Sparkolloid and Scottzymes) while in other cases we work with partner firms. You can check out virtually all of our offerings on this website.
