Particle Filtration for a Clear Product and Peace of Mind
For distilled spirits like whisky, tequila, vodka, rum, gin and brandy, consumers expect a visually clear, bright product. To meet this requirement, producers need to deliver a bottled product free of suspended particles and haze.
Particle removal in spirits occurs at different stages in the production process including:
- Barrel Char Removal – typically performed in production of whisky and other brown spirits after barrel aging
- Activated Carbon Removal – often used in vodka and tequila production downstream of carbon treatment
- Guard Filtration – a final step prior to bottling to ensure product clarity
- General Particle Removal – implemented to remove residues like sugar crystals from rum or particles from flavor infusions in gin
