Neutral Rye Alcohol

What is Rye Alcohol?

Rye alcohol 96% is the standard premium alcohol produced by fermenting and distilling naturally grown rye. This raw material alcohol has a characteristic smell, taste, clear colour and almost none impurities.

Why use Rye Alcohol as part of your distillation process?


Thanks to it being thoroughly distilled, this grain alcohol has a neutral smell, taste, clear colour and a very low amount of impurities; this purity and plainness are GNS’s strength. Lacking its own taste, rye alcohol allows distillers to increase the yield of their product up to three-fold, all without altering the original character. Rye alcohol is therefore often a go-to choice that offers extensive possibilities.


How is Rye Alcohol used


Rye alcohol 96% is frequently used as a raw material alcohol in the production of Gin, London Dry Gin and Sloe Gin. The advantage, of using rye alcohol as the base, is that it does not interfere with flavours and allows the tastes of the botanicals to stay intact.
