What Are Some Custom Copper Still Designs?

Below are some of the designs we use and a brief guide on which designs are suited for which products:

Custom Pot Stills

Pot stills are the traditional design for distillation equipment and are usually made of pure copper. They are typically made for smaller distilleries, as they can only distill one batch at a time. This large pot heats from the bottom, boils the alcohol - which boils at a lower temperature than water - and separates the vapors to create a concentration of alcohol after the fermentation process. Spirits distilled in copper pots often yield a lower-purity liquor, but they create a more flavorful spirit. The copper in pot stills counteracts the sulfur produced in the fermentation process to create a rich and robust flavor with a pleasant and enticing aroma. A pot still traditionally is used to produce Whiskey, Rum and Brandy.

Plated Column

A plated column Can be added to any traditional pot still and is used to obtain a much higher proof of alcohol. If you want to make a vodka then you will need a plated column to achieve the high proof necessary for this.

Custom Hybrid Stills

Most distilleries today use a hybrid-design still, which combines the benefits of a pot still with the convenience of a column still.
