The term Fusel Oil comes from an old German word “Fuseln” which means “to bungle” and was applied to bad spirit as in distilled alcohol and also bad tobacco. The higher alcohols, also referred to as fusel oils are found in most fermented beverages. These are alcohols that have 3 (three) to 6 (six) carbon atoms per molecule. They are produced through the metabolization nitrogenous compounds by yeasts. The term fusel oil is strictly remains of “pot or batch distillation”, the compounds with low volatility.

The compounds that go to make fusel oil predominantly consists of higher alcohols, especially Amyl Alcohol, Esters, Fatty acids and some specific aldehydes. While not strictly oils have an oily consistency, the non-volatility and oily nature of higher alcohols lies in their high molecular weight and structure. The higher alcohols include;

A Typical Fusel Oil produced in small amounts during alcoholic fermentation contains 60-70% of Amyl Alcohol, smaller amounts of n-Propyl alcohol & Iso Butanol and traces of other components. In industrial alcohol plants Fusel oil & Etthy Alcohol are recovered from the fermented liquors and separated by distillation.
