Distillery Operations Rely on Consistent Equipment

The spirits industry is undergoing a renaissance, as there’s renewed interest in “hard” liquor varieties such as bourbon, whiskey, vodka, and gin. The difference between the cocktail days of the 1950s and today is not the quantity of the alcohol, but the quality. Modern consumers are clamoring for great tasting, first-rate spirits; the only way to provide these products is by utilizing the highest-quality ingredients and equipment.

All alcohol starts with a mash. This mash can be made from carbohydrate-containing plant materials such as corn, grain, fruit, potatoes, sugar or anything else that will ferment. Combining water and yeast with the plant materials allows the yeast turn the sugars to alcohol. The trick is to get the pure alcohol out of the mash—this is accomplished through distillation.
