The Vökva Vodka distilling process is quite complex and entails the following:

Preparation of Mash The NON-GMO Project Verified Corn is placed in a mash tub or machine with built-in agitators that pulverize the grains as the tub turns around or revolves.Preparation of Mash The NON-GMO Project Verified Corn is placed in a mash tub or machine with built-in agitators that pulverize the grains as the tub turns around or revolves.

 

Fermentation The pulp is poured into huge stainless-steel holders. A certain amount of yeast is put in after which the tubs are closed for two to four days. Enzymes (complex chemicals) convert sugars in the pulp to ethyl alcohol.

 

Reverse Osmosis Water with Higher PH At this point, some water is added to the alcohol percentage which is reduced significantly. Vökva Vodka uses reverse osmosis water with a PH infuser. This allows us to bring the alkalinity above the normal PH levels of municipal water; in doing so it is scientifically proven that water with a higher PH helps your body stay healthier.
Distillation & Rectification Liquid ethyl alcohol is siphoned to the stills. These are stainless-steel pilasters composed of vaporization chambers and piled on top of one another. The alcohol is rotated up and down continuously. It is heated by the steam to the point where the vapors are discharged and condensed. The process takes away all the impurities. Vapors go up to the upper chambers where these are concentrated. The extracts flow to lower chambers where these are disposed off. Some of the dregs or residue can be sold as feeds for livestock.

Bottling The final step is bottling in which the alcoholic beverages are transferred to glass bottles. Glass is preferred since the material is non-reactive. Reactive containers like plastic and metal cause possible chemical changes in the alcoholic beverage. Bottling is done by hand to add another unique twist to our quality control process and then the bottles must be cleaned properly, filled up, capped, closed, labelled and placed inside boxes. Our bottles are ECO-FRIENDLY, we use recycled glass for the bottle and the closure is made up of recycled plastics.
