Easy 10 pts!Www@FoodAQ@Com

It means that it's been distilled 4 times!.
Liquor is made by distilling!. Each time you distill the liquor, it gets purer, cleaner, and has less flavor!. The more times you do it, the cleaner your vodka will be!.!.!.supposedly!.
It's more of an advertising catch phrase than anything!. Almost all vodka is distilled in an apparatus that distills it once, but has been constructed to effectively distill multiple times in one step!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Distillation can be done in 2 ways for spirits!. Batch process in a pot still or continuous process in a column still!. The pot still means you put all the mash in the pot and distill it, then you can take the distillate and put it back in the pot (or another pot) and distill it again!. Kettle one and Titos are the only two vodkas I know that use pot stills!.

In a continuous column still, which is considered cheaper and more efficient, the mash is piped into the top and the distillate is heated up from the bottom, through the cool liquid!. Here it goes through multiple steps in a single unit!. Technically I dont think anyone using a column still should be distilling more than once, though it is possible they run the distillate through again to increase purity!. It is also possible that they consider each step in a column still as one distillation!.

For vodka, which is all about having a clean taste, the number of distillations is a mark of purity!. Tito's Handmade Vodka is distilled 6 times, and is very high quality!. I suggest you check it out!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
