Notably Cinnamon powder is not typically used for distilling, it does not impart any particular flavor or aroma. Although, it can be used as a botanical in some distilling processes. Usually added to a spirit base prior to distillation in order to introduce the desired flavor and aroma.

Using Cinnamon powder botanical in distilling.

In summary distilling with this botanical add it directly to the mash or added as an essence post-distillation. When added directly to the mash, grind the powder into a fine dust to maximize its contribution. Notably the powder can also be added to the still pot prior to distillation. Hence a warming cinnamon flavor in the finished product. Adding it post-distillation another method used. Either a tincture or an infusion, both will help to preserve the flavor in the spirit. To make a tincture, combine 1 tablespoon of the powder with 1 cup of spirits and steep for two weeks. To make an infusion, combine 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder with 1 cup of boiling water, let it steep for 10 minutes and then strain out the powder before adding it to the distilled spirits.
