What is sugar cane alcohol?

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

Sugar cane alcohol uses

Sugar cane 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, sugar cane alcohol is also used to produce medicines, pharmaceutical products, as well as perfumes and other cosmetics.

How is sugar cane processed into ethanol?

Sugar cane ethanol production is a precise and labour-intensive process. First, the sugar cane is harvested. In most countries, this is done by hand. After harvesting, the sugar cane is cut and milled with water to produce raw sugar cane 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.
