The Geeky Science behind

The Geeky Science

Clarification ethanol treatment significantly reduces, by as much as 50%, the content of impurities such as mono-and polyaromatic compounds (derivatives of benzene, phenol, tyrosine, tryptophan, benzaldehyde, and other organic compounds). A significant reduction of impurities in alcohol and alcohol solutions after Clarification treatment can improve the organoleptic characteristics of alcohol-based beverages used in the food industry.

After Clarification processing in the 40% alcohol solution, the number of OH-groups with weak hydrogen bonds is greater than in the untreated sample.

In aqueous solutions of ethanol, the existence of various molecular structures like water clusters, clusters of ethanol molecules, or heterogeneous water-ethanol associates is possible. At high alcohol content (~40 vol %) ethanol clusters appear. These ethanol clusters undoubtedly stimulate the palate differently from either water clusters or the clathrate-like water-ethanol structures. Even in the absence of “taste” in the traditional sense, vodka drinkers could express preference for a particular structure.

Straight Talk

After Clarification, there’s up to 50% less of the yucky stuff (impurities)  in your alcohol. Fewer impurities means it tastes better. And we all know how the stuff we don’t want makes us feel the next day.

Clarification rearranges the molecular structure of the alcohol. This is what makes the Clarified alcohol so much less harsh.

The Technology

Our patented and patent-pending technologies are set to disrupt the liquor business. While the spirits industry has gone through changes and improvements in the fermentation, distillation, and filtration process in the last 400 years, there have been no major technological developments –until today. With the addition of our Clarification Technology, we have fundamentally changed the consumer experience in enjoying alcoholic beverages.

The core principle behind the technology is a dynamic flow-through of fluids where molecules are collapsing into micro-vapor bubbles, producing physical and chemical restructuring at the molecular level. Molecular chains in the alcohol are broken into nano-particles effecting a change in the molecular structure and bonding in spirits. The process does not alter the proof or filter, and does not reduce the volume of the spirits, it simply reduces the harshness and removes up to 50% of the harmful impurities in the alcohol. The result is a dramatic reduction in the ‘alcohol burn’, a significant enhancement in the taste profile, and less of the bad stuff.

In 2017, the technology was advanced further with the miniaturization of the Clarification Technology in a simple to use home unit

How it works:

a. Pump and motor system generates a high-pressure environment for the Clarification Technology.

b. The intake valve sucks liquid up to be recirculated through the clarification tube.

c. The liquid is turned into nanoparticles for a fraction of a second, creating pleasant-tasting esters from the alcohol’s original harsh tasting acids. (visual below shows high-pressure collapsing bubbles to create nanobubbles)
