Undistilled Drinks (wine and beer)

Undistilled alcoholic drinks are also called fermented drinks. Fermentation is the process of using bacteria or yeast to chemically convert sugar into alcohol (ethanol). The main undistilled alcoholic beverages are wines and beers where both are made by fermentation. Wineries companies ferment grapes to make various types of wine while breweries companies ferment barley, wheat, and other grains to make different beer brands in Kenya.


 Beer is the best-known and most consumed alcoholic beverage globally. It is made by fermenting grain mash typically, barley, corn, rice, and yeast and flavouring it with hops.

It is usually classified into two categories; ale and lagers. The main difference between lager and ales is the use of yeast where lagers use bottom-fermenting yeast while ales use top-fermenting yeast.

A standard beer, whether it is lager or an ale, has an alcohol content of about 2% to 8% ABV, however, some beers have higher or lower alcohol concentrations.

Do you know the glass you drink your beer from affects the beer’s flavour? This is because the shape of the glass affects the way you hold it in your hands, which warms the beer and affects its flavour due to the temperature change.

That is why, it is recommended you drink your beer from a thick glass, or one with a handle so as not to affect its flavour. 


Wine is produced by fermenting grape juice or other fruits such as apples, cherries, berries, or plums. Wine can be classified into five main categories; red wine, white wine, rosé wine, sparkling wine, and fortified wine and also champagne wine.

The wine undergoes a longer fermentation process than beer and a long ageing process, resulting in an alcohol content of about 9%–16% ABV.

It is believed that the longer the ageing process, the better the wine tastes. The yeast is the main ingredient which produces alcohol in wines after converting the sugars in grapes to alcohol.

It usually has an alcohol content of about 1.2% to 8.5% ABV or more. We also have sake which is made from rice. Sparkling wine is mostly made by employing a secondary fermentation process. Champagne is the most popular sparkling wine in Kenya and usually has an alcohol concentration of about 10% to 12%. Some wines are “fortified” by adding distilled spirit to raise their alcohol content up to 20% ABV.

 Alcohol strength

Alcohol by volume (ABV) and alcohol proof are the main measures used to determine the strength or alcohol concentration of an alcoholic drink.

Alcohol by volume is the number of millilitres of ethanol per 100 millilitres of a beverage, while alcohol proof is twice the percentage of alcohol by volume. For example, a drink which has 35% ABV will be 70 proof. This alcohol content measurement is a percentage of alcohol per volume.
