What is sugarcane alcohol?

Sugarcane alcohol is alcohol made from the sugarcane plant. To be exact, the alcohol is produced by fermenting and distilling the juice of the sugarcane. Our bulk alcohol made from sugarcane contains 96% alcohol per volume, and is almost completely odourless and tasteless. This makes it perfect for a wide range of uses.

Sugarcane alcohol uses

Sugarcane alcohol is used as a base for many alcoholic spirits. Even though it is made from sugar, its taste is quite neutral and not particularly sweet. This makes it perfect for almost any distilled drink, from vodka to rum and caçhaca to all kinds of liquors. It is also widely used in the food industry. It can serve, for instance, as a preservative or solvent for flavours and colourants. Apart from food and drink, sugarcane alcohol is also used to produce medicines, pharmaceutical products, as well as perfumes and other cosmetics.

How is sugarcane processed into ethanol?

Sugarcane ethanol production is a precise and labour-intensive process. First, the sugarcane is harvested. In most countries, this is done by hand. After harvesting, the sugarcane is cut and milled with water to produce raw sugarcane juice. The juice is then heated to remove unwanted impurities, after which it is ready to ferment. When the fermentation is complete, the juice can be distilled. This process is often repeated no less than three times in order to reach a high level of purity.


Not all sugarcane alcohol is used for the production of food or drinks. If this is true in your case, and you will be using your organic sugarcane alcohol, say, for perfume, we can denature it for you. Choose from the following denaturants:

  • DEP
  • MEK
  • Bitrex
  • TSDA 1-9
  • TBA
  • IPA
  • Euro Denatured
  • Tipo A-D

Choose your own combination of denaturants to create the customised neutral sugarcane alcohol you need, or contact us to discuss the various options.
