One of the biggest factors in choosing a still type is the type of spirit you want to make. 🍹🍸🥃🍷Pot stills are typically used for distillation in smaller quantities. Column stills usually work better for a larger amount of mash. The main type of material we use to make both, pot stills and column stills is copper.
A pot still simply collects and condenses the alcohol vapors that come from the boiling mash. The alcoholic vapor passes through the copper cap, the connecting pipe, and the cooler. This will result in alcohol at about 40-60% purity, with plenty of flavor in it. If you put that distillate through the pot still again, it would increase the purity of the distillate to around 70-85%, but it will lose a bit of its flavor.
Reflux still does multiple distillations in a single run. Our column segments can be made with bubble plates, a copper filling or with a flat plate. All column stills are intended for getting neutral spirits with a slight aroma and a high percentage of alcohol.
We produce stills in capacity from 1 to 1000 L, so for sure we can offer distillation equipment according to your requirements or wishes. Even if we are not producing it in our standard program, we can produce custom-made still for you.
