Veganism is defined as a way of living that attempts to exclude all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty, be it from food, clothing, or any other purpose. The word vegan was formed by combining the starting and last words of ‘vegetarian’.
Just like vegan food, cosmetics or clothing, vegan alcohol does not contain any animal products and has not utilized any animal ingredients during its production. The main ideology behind it is that one should not use any products of animals has every one has the right to live without being exploited.
While there are very few beef-flavored beverages available in the market, there are a surprising number of drinks that use animal products during their production. Like bone char, which is sometimes used to purify sugar, animal ingredients are sometimes used in alcoholic beverages to ensure a clear brew, in a process called “fining.” Tannins, proteins, and other organic compounds are removed from the final product, creating a purer beverage.
