 Information @ a glance   


  • A rectified spirit, rectified alcohol, or neutral spirit is highly concentrated ethanol which has been purified by means of repeated distillation, a process that is called rectification.
  • Rectified spirits are used in mixed drinks, in the production of liqueurs, for medicinal purposes, and as a household solvent.
  • Neutral grain spirits are rectified spirits made from grain.
  • Rectified spirits are illegal for nonmedical purposes in some nations (including India), and were banned until recently[when?] in Canada, but they are legal in most Western nations.
  • The rectified spirit from the rectifier is superheated with steam in feed super-heater.
  • Distillation is the separation of the constituents of a liquid mixture by partial vaporization and subsequent condensation, taking advantage of differences in volatility.
  • Rectification is the multiple distillation of liquids in direct contact with steam in counterflow.
  • Rectified spirit (RS) consumption is likely to decline 20 per cent this year on falling demand from the chemical industry, according to estimates made by industry officials.
  • RS is widely used as intermediates for manufacturing various chemical acidic products such as acidic acid and other chemicals such as mono ethylene glycol (MEG), which is used to make fibre.
  • A scarcity of rectified spirit in West Bengal (WB) has brought the bottling operations of organised sector country liquor manufacturers to a halt, disrupting distribution through licensed retail vendors.
  • Sugar companies will shift to producing more ethanol at current prices is also unlikely considering other by-products of the distillation process such as rectified spirit and potable alcohol fetch a higher price at a relatively lower cost to produce as compared to ethanol.
