Whiskey Still

IMG 1332

This still is suitable for making all distilled spirits, but especially Whiskey made from corn, grain and sour mashes.

Based on the same design principles as employed for centuries by many of the famous large Scottish distilleries and similar to those in use in many households until prohibition laws were passed in the late 1700’s.

The design is characterized by the small ball-like onion dome, the tall pointed cone and the straight, but slightly sloping arm. These features produce a stronger, more refined spirit due to the reflux action that results.

Copper stills are used exclusively in making premium Whiskies as the inherent qualities of the metal removes un-wanted sulphites from the wash and produces a sweet, fresh, clean tasting distillation unlike stainless steel, which can produce an unpleasant taste and aroma.
