Activated carbon is used for filtering spirits because it is an excellent material for removing impurities and flavors from the liquid. The activated carbon is made from materials like wood, coal, or coconut shells that are heated to a high temperature, which creates millions of tiny pores on its surface. These pores increase the surface area of the carbon and give it the ability to adsorb (not absorb) impurities.
When spirits, such as vodka or whiskey, are passed through activated carbon, the impurities are attracted to the surface of the carbon, where they are trapped in the pores. This process helps to remove unwanted flavors, odors, and impurities, leaving behind a smoother and cleaner-tasting spirit.
Activated carbon is also an affordable and widely available material, making it a popular choice for filtering spirits in large-scale production. Additionally, it is a natural material and does not contain any chemicals or additives, making it a safe and effective option for food and beverage applications.
