Grain Alcohol

If you’re interested in an organically produced alcohol, our Organic Grain Alcohol may be right for you! This grain alcohol may be used across a variety of industry to satisfy your brands’ needs.

What is Organic Grain Alcohol?

Organic Grain Alcohol is a type of alcohol produced from grains that were grown without pesticides, artificial fertilizers, food additives and ionizing radiation in order to follow the strict organic guidelines set by the European Union and the USDA. As the raw materials used in production are grown organically, the process of fermenting and distilling these grains into an alcohol must also follow the guidelines of the USDA. Grain alcohol is typically used to make other alcoholic beverages such as liqueurs or certain types of whiskey.

 

Applications and Use 

Organic Grain Alcohol is frequently used as a raw material for the production of other spirits and distillates. The reason for the use of this as a base alcohol is that it allows the taste of the natural botanicals to stay intact, thus not affecting the flavor of the spirit being produced.

In addition to its role in the production of other spirits, Organic Grain Alcohol has taken on roles in the food, non-alcoholic beverages, cosmetic, and pharmaceuticals industry due to its neutrality as a rectified spirit.

HOW ITS MADE

The production of Organic Grain Alcohol is produced from organic grains as well as follows the strict guidelines for organic foods that is set by the USDA. It is made by distilling organic grain that has been fermented.

STEP ONE

Collection of Grain

During this step, the grain that will be used as the base raw material for production will be collected and prepped for further processes.

STEP TWO

Fermentation

Once the grain is chosen, it’s time to begin milling. Milling refers to the biological process in which the kernels are ground into a meal, which is a form of flour. This process uses starches, which are long chains of sugar molecules that classify starches as carbohydrates.

STEP THREE

Distillation

Once milling is complete, liquefaction begins. This is the process in which water is added to the milled kernels to make ‘slurry,’ which is then heated to break up the long starch molecules chained together into smaller pieces. Alpha-amylase is an enzyme that is added to this mixture to speed up, or catalyze, the breakdown of starch molecules.

STEP FOUR

Rectification and Redistillation

During this step, the starch molecules that were previously broken down into smaller pieces are now broken down into simple sugar glucose. This process uses the enzyme glucoamylase to catalyze this reaction.
