Distilled beverages have been produced in most countries around the world for well over 1000 years, and today are enjoying a resurgence, not least because of product innovation and many new manufacturers entering the industry. This Special Issue focuses on the science and technology of the distilled beverages sector, and invites authors to submit reviews and original research papers to showcase their work on the scientific and technological aspects of the distilled beverages supply chain. Examples might include consideration of a specific distilled beverage category, with submissions addressing more localized beverages, such as mescal and Asian white spirits particularly welcome. Additionally, other aspects of the supply chain, such as barrel alternatives, wood sustainability and co-product processing are highly relevant to 21st century distilled beverage production.Prof. Paul Hughes
