My understanding was that nothing changes, but that we are merely
exploiting differences in the vapour pressures of each of the individual
compounds, to concentrate them & colect them. The only exception would be
things like sulphides reacting with copper & being removed ?
The pracctice of adding carbon to the sugar would only be of benefit to
those people trying to make a clean neutral spirit, not those wanting to
keep some flavours.
