How is alcohol made?

High-percentage ethyl alcohol, which is obtained from the fermentation and distillation of various plant materials, has been called spirit in Poland for centuries. Where did this name come from? It comes from the Latin idiom spiritus vini – the spirit (smell) of wine. In Poland, spirit is most often made from traditional Polish cereals: rye, wheat, triticale, oats or barley, or from potatoes. The spirit production process consists of several stages:

  • Raw material preparation. It consists in cleaning, grinding and moisturizing the raw material, e.g. potatoes, beets, cereals, fruit or molasses. The purpose of this step is to facilitate the access of enzymes and yeast to the starches or sugars contained in the raw material.
  • Fermentation. This is a biochemical process where yeast converts sugars into ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide. Fermentation takes place in special tanks under the control of temperature, pH and oxygen concentration. The duration of fermentation depends on the type of raw material and yeast, but usually ranges from a few to several days.
  • Distillation. It is a physical process that separates the ethyl alcohol from the other fermentate components such as water, fusel, methanol and other volatile compounds. Distillation involves heating the fermentate to the boiling point of alcohol (approx. 78°C) and condensing its vapors in a cooler. In this way, the so-called raw spirit with an alcohol content of approx. 80-90%.
  • Rectification. It is a process of improving the quality of spirit by removing unwanted volatile compounds such as methanol, aldehydes, esters and organic acids. Purification consists in repeated heating and condensation of spirit in a special rectification column, which is divided into so-called plates or floors. Partial condensation and evaporation of the spirit takes place on each plate, which leads to its gradual purification and an increase in alcohol concentration.
  • Dilution and stabilization. It is a process of bringing the spirit to the desired strength and quality by adding the appropriate amount of demineralized or distilled water and stabilizing additives, such as citric acid or sodium sulfate. The purpose of this stage is to obtain spirit with an alcohol content of 95-96% and to ensure its durability and health safety.

Spirits produced in Koneser are perfect for making homemade liqueurs. They are able to extract the natural smell and aroma from sun-scented fruits, which reflects their deep flavor. They can be used directly on the fruit without the need to dilute with water.
