Why use GNS as part of your distillation process?

Thanks to it being thoroughly distilled, this grain alcohol has a neutral smell, taste, clear color and a very low number of impurities. Lacking its own taste, GNS allows distillers to increase the yield of their product up to three-fold, all without altering the original character. GNS is often a go-to choice that offers extensive possibilities.

Applications and Use

Grain Neutral Spirit 96% is frequently used as a Raw Material Alcohol in the production of Gin, London Dry Gin and Sloe Gin. This base does not interfere with flavor and allows the tastes of the botanicals to stay intact. Grain Neutral Spirit allows flavors to be maintained and doesn’t overshadow the distilleries intended end result – the flavor.

Along with its use in spirits production, the neutrality of rectified spirits also makes it useful in other industries such as the food, non-alcoholic beverages, pharmaceuticals and the cosmetics industry.


HOW ITS MADE During this process, the grains are repeatedly distilled which then creates a highly concentrated, clear, and odorless spirit.   STEP ONE Choosing the Raw Material During this step, the type of natural grain is chosen for fermenting and distilling. The most popular grains used for Neutral Grain Spirits are Corn, Rye, Wheat, Barley, or Rice.   STEP TWO Fermentation of the Chosen Grain Once the grain is chosen, it’s time to begin fermentation. Fermentation is a very common term used across the alcohol industry. It refers to the biological process in which sugar is converted into alcohol and carbon dioxide. The catalyst in this process is yeast, used to break down the sugars and convert them into alcohol and other bi-products.   STEP THREE Distillation Once fermentation is complete, distillation begins. This is the process in which the fermented grain is converted from a liquid into a vapor, then back into a liquid. The grain that’s being distilled determines the distillation method: column or pot still. During this step, the product from the fermentation step is boiled to a certain temperature to produce the final product, Neutral Grain Spirits. Alcohol (ethanol) has a lower boiling point than water, therefore evaporating into a gas during the distillation process. After it’s captured in its gas form, it cools down and leaves us with a liquid mixture of highly concentrated alcohol.   Certificates ISO 9001, ISO 22000, Lloyd's Register Available upon request Kosher, Non GMO
