Tun refers to a huge container made from either copper or stainless steel, whose primary function is to accommodate the ingredients (mash) of making an alcoholic beverage like whiskey. Tun helps initiate the mashing process that begins with converting starch present in grounded grains to sugars for effective fermentation.

A tun can also refer to a barrel or cask.
