KREIDEZEIT Alcohol (ethyl alcohol, spirit) is a fermentation alcohol. It is obtained by fermenting plant material containing sugar or starch through certain yeasts (analogous to beer/ wine production) and subsequent distillation. Distillation tax is levied on pure alcohol as a beverage. For tax reasons, so-called denaturants are therefore added to it for technical applications, which make it inedible or cause immediate vomiting if swallowed. KREIDEZEIT Alcohol is denatured with methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
