Neutral Alcohols

If you’re interested in the distillation and distribution of Neutral Alcohol, you have come to the right place. Neutral Alcohols can be used for making all different kinds of spirits, liqueurs, and other alcohol beverages.

Our Neutral Alcohol is used as a base for spirits and alcoholic beverages, within the food and beverage industry, the cosmetics and beauty industry, and for pharmaceutical and medical grade purposes.

What is Neutral Alcohol?

Neutral alcohols function as the base spirits that are ready to be distilled with botanicals and herbs. Neutral alcohols are made from a variety of raw materials, including sugarcane molasses, barley, corn, wheat, rice, and rye. This alcohol also has no taste or smell, making it organoleptically neutral.

The primary use for Neutral Alcohol is its function as a base for spirits, distillates, and alcoholic beverages. In addition, it has found a use in the food and beverage industry, the cosmetics and beauty industry, as well as in practice for pharmaceutical and medical grade purposes. Neutral Alcohol is currently very popular in the production of hand sanitizer.

HOW ITS MADE

Neutral alcohols are made from a variety of raw materials, including sugarcane molasses, barley, corn, wheat, rice, and rye. In order to produce the colorless and odorless final product, the agricultural raw materials are fermented and distilled multiples times.

STEP ONE 

Selecting the Raw Material 

In this step, the raw material that will serve as the base of the product must be chosen. Barley, corn, wheat, rice, and rye are amongst the most popular grains used to produce neutral alcohols.

STEP TWO

Fermentation of the Raw Material

After choosing the raw material, the next step is to begin fermentation. Fermentation is a term used widely across the alcohol industry that refers to the process where sugars are converted into carbon dioxide and alcohol. In order to achieve this biological process, yeast is added as a catalyst to break down the sugars and convert those into alcohol and other biproducts.

STEP THREE

Rectification and Redistillation of the Mixture

During the redistillation process, demineralized water is added to the fermented raw material in order to remove any future impurities in the mixture. Upon rectification of the alcohol to 96% v/v, the mixture will be redistilled. The rate of conversion of rectified alcohol into neutral alcohol typically occurs between 70-80%, meaning that with every litre of rectified alcohol that is processed, between 0.7 and 0.8 litres of Neutral Alcohol are produced.
