The good people at Terressentia have come up with a way of using science to make booze taste better by removing impurities left over from the distillation process. In short, with typical distillation, there are lesser alcohols that are formed that leave a harsh taste in the mouth and contribute to hangovers. By using their patentend process, Terressentia can remove these unwanted elements making the refined product taste cleaner and smoother. The distillation process has pretty much been the same for the last hundred years or so and after watching the video, I am surprised that no one has thought of this before. I suppose purists may argue that the real craft of making superb liquors is in the skill of the brewmaster. That being said, the idea of demystifying the process through science is very appealing to geek in me.
The way distilled spirits were treated was so inefficient, we just said ‘let see if we can come up with some better ideas’
