Wheat, with its rich history and versatility, offers a characterful base for distillation.
The process begins with carefully selected wheat grains, prized for their quality and flavour potential. The starches within the wheat are transformed into fermentable sugars through milling and mashing, creating the perfect foundation for Still Spirited's liquid profile.
Once the mash is prepared, fermentation begins, as yeast works its magic, converting sugars into alcohol. Patience is key during this transformative phase, allowing the flavours to develop and intensify.
Next comes the intricate art of distillation, where the liquid is heated and the vapours captured, cooled and condensed to create a purer, more refined spirit. This delicate dance between heat, vapor, and condensation allows for the separation of impurities and the extraction of desirable flavors and aromas.
The result is a spirit crafted from wheat, boasting a smooth, creamy mouthfeel and a distinctive, nuanced flavour profile. From the elegant neutrality of our Scottish Vodka to the botanical symphony of our Scottish Gin, distilling wheat spirits unveils a world of possibilities, inviting enthusiasts to savour the unique essence of this remarkable grain.
