A Beginners Guide To Hard Alcohol

SO, what is alcohol or distilled spirit? Well, the first thing you need is juice – it could be the juice from an apple, a potato, or a piece of wheat (anything you can get natural sugars from). The next thing you need is some yeast to eat the sugar in the juice and excrete it into alcohol (you can think of booze as a special sort of yeast poo). This is the basic gist of how to make beer and wine – but you can only get around 16% alcohol with this method, so for a stronger alcoholic drink, you must distil it!  Distillation is the act of removing water from the liquid and can be done in a still – which looks a lot like an old wood burner with a squiggly line at the top of it.  Put the crude wine or beer in the still, heat it up (alcohol has a lower boiling point than water) so that the alcohol evaporates through the top of the still but the water stays in the bottom. The alcohol will condense in the squiggly part of the still and Tadaaa – a higher proof alcohol comes out.  Every time you distil, you get a cleaner product that is higher in proof than the last distillation.  After a couple of distillations, you will get a product that is of a higher proof than most consider palatable (like maybe 150 or 160 proof), and that’s when water is added to bring it to a preferred proof. For example, most vodkas are 80 proof.  Obviously then, water plays a big part in the flavour of the spirit, in particular in plain vodka, where there are no other factors playing into the flavour of the spirit.
