Scope

We offer the service of reduction or removal of undesirable compounds in distillates such as tequila or mezcal, by means of adsorption on activated carbons.

These compounds can modify the desired profile, cause color, turbidity, flavor, aroma or other organoleptic effect, depending on their physicochemical characteristics.

Our service begins with the search for the carbon or mixture of activated carbons from a matrix of more than 50 types of the highest possible specificity, in order to minimize the adsorption of molecules that the client does not wish to remove from the tequila.

The tequila or distillate to be treated can be reduced of fatty acids, aromas and unwanted colors, furfural or phthalates can also be eliminated.
With this process it is also possible to produce cristalino tequila from añejos and extra añejos.

In order to do this, we generate samples that allow the customer to choose the type of carbon and the most appropriate dosage. At this point, we can refine the search, in terms of carbon types and doses.

The service includes the development of the process application technique at industrial level, the conformation of the treatment train equipment (not the equipment), the sizing of the equipment, the execution of the treatment process and the accompaniment of the client until the objective is achieved.

*The technical service does not include the required equipment or activated carbons.

Drinks that we can correct

  • Tequila
  • Mezcal
  • Whisky
  • Aniseed
  • Ron
  • Vodka
  • Geneva
  • Brandy
  • Spirits and liquors

Benefits

  • Remove or minimize the unwanted compound, affecting as little as possible the profile of the tequila or distillate to be treated.

 

  • Eliminate tequila shrinkage to the lowest levels achievable by state-of-the-art technologies (we estimate a shrinkage of less than 1%).

 

  • Provide a method of charcoal application that is simple and does not require expensive equipment, procedures or labor.

 

  • Avoid the typical fouling generated by powdered coals.

 

  • By using coals that our company uses, they can be reactivated, in case you wish to recycle them. (more information on the reactivation here)
