Our production process

5 fundamental steps

Malting

Malting is the part of the production process that consists of an initial steeping in water during which our barley is placed in large vats. Once the steeping is finished the water is drained away and the barley is left to germinate on the malting floor.
When the insoluble starches become soluble we dry the cereal with warm air. We will now have a mature malt that is ready for the mashing process.

Mashing

Here the dried malt will be milled and then mixed with hot water. This process concludes the conversion phase of the dextrin into malt. The sweet liquid produced is our prized wort.

Fermentation

This is one of the most important parts in the preparation of our raw materials. We add the correct amounts of water and yeast to the wort before allowing it to settle inside large fermenting vats. A process that can last for between 48 and 112 hours.

Distillation

During the first stage the fermented product is placed in a still and heated. The temperature in the still should not exceed 100°.
During the second distillation the alcoholic substance is again heated and waste products, so-called “foreshoots”, are removed. Only on reaching 78.4° do we arrive at the distillate, a substance consisting mainly of ethyl alcohol. Another important phase occurs at 95°. At this temperature we see the evaporation of elements such as aldehydes. All these by-products are eliminated at this stage as they are considered “feints”.
At the third distillation we achieve a pure and transparent 70° proof distillate. During this stage 2/3 of our initial ingredients will have been discarded.

Maturation

Freshly distilled is then placed in once used american oak barrels for a minimum of three years, to mature.
American Oak is used because it has the ability to absorb and store elements from previous maturing processes which give the final product added aromas. The maturing process is also influenced by the size of the barrels and the temperature and humidity of the environment in which they are stored.
