Type Neutral grain spirit
Manufacturer Luxco
Alcohol by volume 95%
Proof 190

Golden Grain Alcohol is a brand of neutral grain spirit that is available at 95% alcohol (190 proof), in contrast to hard liquors such as rum and vodka, which typically contain 40%–60% alcohol (80–120 proof).

Since 95.6% ethanol and 4.4% water form an azeotrope (meaning that simple distillation cannot remove any of the remaining water), 191-proof is the maximum proof that is available from the distilled beverage industry. As Golden Grain Alcohol is a neutral grain spirit, it is relatively low in congeners.

Golden Grain Alcohol is manufactured by Luxco (formerly the David Sherman Company), the manufacturer of Everclear.
