Did you know that your favourite drink might have more than just alcohol in it?
Brewmasters, winemakers, and distillers sometimes use animal ingredients in their products - either during processing or filtration.
Dairy, honey, and other products could be ingredients in the final recipe. When filtering the drinks prior to bottling, companies sometimes use isinglass (from fish bladder), gelatin, egg whites, and sea shells, among other things. These products make it easier to catch impurities when filtering, though there are many animal-free alternatives in use.
