Bonds. What bonds us to a particular type of spirit or brand? Is it tradition, habit, hesitance to try something new? In distillation the bonds go much deeper, something we cannot see, something on a molecular level. The Azeotrope, the point where the ethanol cannot be further separated from the water, has very strong hydrogen bonds with water at a rate of 3.5%. Thus the highest proof we can attain from distillation is 96.5% or 193 proof. Some bonds cannot be broken. Our tenacity to separate any impurity is habitual, our hesitance to find an easier or faster way…our tradition. At Azeo, we know we cannot fight molecular chemistry for purity, so we’re running with perfection.
