  • n. Still-wash, the liquid residue left from distilling off alcohol from a fermented liquid. The name is especially applied to this residue from the distillation of fermented beet-root molasses, which is a valuable source of potash salts, principally potassium carbonate. The corresponding French term is vinasse: both words have been to a certain extent adopted into English.
