Distilling

Please use the arrows either side of the picture to navigate through this slide show.

Before any distilling can start, malted barley and other grains are ground into a form of flour called grist, which is mixed with water to produce mash. Enzymes in the mash break it down into a sugary liquid called wort, which can now be brewed into a sort of beer – known as wash.

The wash is then distilled in column or – for the malt wash - pot stills (shown above). Here, the wash is heated, causing the liquid to evaporate – more alcohol than water evaporates, making the resulting spirit much stronger.
