What is copper catalyzation? What does copper contribute?

Copper distillation is the natural way for removing any impurities, and it defines the exceptionally refined character found in Elyx. During the production of raw spirit, copper packets are manually added to each batch, and exchanged at regular intervals.

Through copper catalyzation – a kinetic process – the copper packets react with, and remove, any sulfur remnants, which results in an absolutely pure spirit. Each batch of Elyx is then distilled in our old 1921 copper column still, with columns, pumps and hand-forged pipes made of copper. This vintage still plays an integral part in the making of Elyx, as it makes full use of the exceptional and naturally purifying qualities of the copper. Our refined copper distillation is what gives Elyx its distinctive character and unique, silky texture.
