At Steinhart Distillery the mash is distilled batch by batch in our handmade, all copper still. The first distillation is considered the stripping run, where we separate the drinking alcohol, the hearts, from the rest of the mash (heads and tails). The next distillation is considered the ‘rectification run’ where you very carefully separate the last impurities (heads and tails) from your drinking alcohol. The resulting product will be around 95% abv (190 proof). At this point this will be diluted with best Nova Scotian spring water to 40% abv (80 proof) drinking strength. No chemicals will be added, like so many of the mass produced vodkas sold. Good vodka has to have somewhat of a little burn which should not linger. If vodka is too smooth, that is a result of chemicals, such as glycerin, citric acid, or sugar. If the burn lasts that is a sign of poor vodka (cheap ass crappy stuff sold in plastic gallon jugs).
