Typical sprit production processes, such as those used in whisky, brandy or cognac production, often start upstream with the consideration of types and quantities of grains, malts or sugars, depending on the spirit being created and the finish a distiller is looking for. The filtering of spirits is mainly employed in the final stages of the distillation process and varies slightly upon spirit type. As with most filtration processes, the stages get successively more refined as the spirit moves downstream; from clarification to the removal of carbon particles and barrel char, to final filtration which ensures the purity and clarity of the bottled spirit.
