Throughout the fermentation, the brewer carries out regular checks. By mobilizing all his know-how, he is the guardian of the production of a high-quality beer that will influence the aromatic palette of the future single malt.
This distillation beer, called “wash”, measures 9% alcohol by volume. By his choices, the brewer works at the service of the distiller who can then take over. It is this wash that will then be distilled to obtain the malt eaux-de-vie.
