What is Alcohol

What is Alcohol?

Alcohol is derived from a starch heavy compound, grain, potatoes, etc. that is broke down into sugar and yeast ferments it into alcohol and carbon dioxide.


Starchy Compound Sugar + Yeast = Alcohol + Carbon Dioxide

That is non distilled alcohol such as beer, wine, hard cider and sake.

Also can be distilled to remove impurities and water and raise the concentration or proof.

Then can be aged to mature the product to enhance flavor.

That is called distilled beverage, spirit or liquor.

That is the basic parameter of alcohol. There are huge varieties of alcohol.  Many changes can be made in any step along the way.

You can change the starchy compound(s)

You can break it into sugars different ways

You can use different types of yeast

It can ferment for different periods of time

Then you can just serve it as is, or distill the product

It can be distilled multiple times in different ways

Then it can be aged

Flavoring can be added at any time

That is how there are so many types and brands of alcohol beverages out there.

I also feel individual packs make using the hangover pill much, much easier. I typically drink away from my house. I drink in bars, on the beach, at cookouts, at music festivals and rarely at home. Carrying a bottle would be tough. Plus putting random capsules in my pocket is always feels sketchy. So a single serving pack is ideal.
