Re: alchohol steam infusion
- Hi Bravo,
Yes for botanical flavors from herbs you can do just this. However aging requires the alcohol to sit on the oak for a period of time in order to absorb the vanillan and oaken flavors. You cannot distill this into the liquor, it must sit and mellow.
Unfortunately when it comes to aging, there is no short cut to time .
