Commonly called alcohol has been described as one of the most exotic oxygen containing organic chemicals known because of its unique properties as solvent, beverage, combustible liquid, germicide and as building block or chemical intermediate for a host of organic chemicals. As a beverage it has been produced and utilized unknowingly as early as 4000 years ago by Pharaohs in gypt.
In India ethyl alcohol has been conventionally and economically produced by fermentation of a byproduct of sugar industry i.e. molasses. Although ethyl alcohol can also be produced from other carbohydrate containing materials by fermentation such as sugar, cassava (tapioca), rice, wheat, barley and other grains, the economics led to its production from molasses, because of its easy availability at a low price. A flourishing distillery industry grew for production of both potable and industrial alcohol from molasses.
