cutting whiskey to bottling strength


Recommended Posts

We are looking at using Evoqua unit for RO water to cut high proof spirits to bottling strength.   If we overshoot below our intended proof, what are we permitted to use to bring the ABV back up to where it should be?  I've looked unsuccessfully for a reference, so if it's obvious, apologies in advance but I haven't seen it.   Recommendations and ideas welcome.

It's very simple. You need to use the same spirit that is approved on the label.

If you add a little whiskey to rum, it's not rum anymore. If you add rum to whiskey, it's not whiskey anymore. If you add high proof vodka to straight whiskey, it's not straight whiskey anymore.
