I have no idea where or who you are talking to, but this is another wrong
statement; for the purposes of the CFR, distillation includes ANY process
intended to increase the alcoholic content of a product, including
fractional crystallization ("freeze-distilling"). It is regulated in exactly
the same way.

languages down dark alleys, knocks them over, and goes through their pockets
for loose grammar."
