The definition od Vodka varies quite significantly from country to country,
but generally can be defined as unaged colorless distilled spirit produced from neutral alcohol / spirits of agricultural origin, without distinctive character, aroma and taste.
Regulations will greatly depend on country and can refer to raw materials/ min %abv in vodka/ possibility to use any ingredients different from neutral alcohol and water/ obligation to use carbon filtration/etc.
Production: As vodka is primarily mix of water and alcohol, quality of both will have a significant impact on quality of final product.
- Usually for dilution of neutral alcohol water processed with reverse osmosis is used to allow clarity and stability of vodka.
- Carbon filtration of alcohol-water mixture is used by majority of producers to remove some organic impurities and improve quality
of vodka due to physical and chemical absorption and oxidation reactions.
- Final Filtration is dedicated to removing any charcoal particles, ensuring a long shelf life and increasing product shine.
DistilaMax® HT is an active dry yeast for use in many types of beverage alcohol fermentations and is especially suited for glucose based feedstocks (most grain and starch-based mashes). DistilaMax HT is recommended for use in the production of Vodka, […]
DistilaMax® DS has been selected especially for a rapid fermentation start and strong stress tolerance; a rapid start helps keep bacterial contaminants low. DistilaMax DS is well-suited to fermenting a broad range of mash styles and produces a congener profile […]
During the process of alcoholic fermentation yeast, which is a complex living organism, is subject to various stressors: temperature, ethanol, pH, organic acids and others. In order to get a successful fermentation, yeast needs a balanced nutrient package which will maximize its potential […]
