Scratch and Dent Stills

Make Your Own Whiskey

  Since they're still fit for use, and we'd be sorry to see them scrapped, we offer them to handy distillers who want to doctor them up and, in exchange, save some cash.

Buying a scratch-and-dent still has its pros and cons, so here's what you should know:

The Bad:
Still might be used.
Still might be dented, scratched, or otherwise damaged.
A returned still might now be as shiny as a new one because of use and exposure.
There is a very small chance for the still to have a leak.

The Good:
We still honor our 100% satisfaction cash-back guarantee.
We still honor our 2-year warranty.
We hope that you will make an honest attempt to repair your still.  However, if hammering out a dent or soldering a leak doesn't work out (though we assure you, it's doable), or you're in any way dissatisfied, we will promptly refund your money.

If you want to be notified as soon as we have a scratch-and-dent still, please send an email to customerservice@whiskeystill.net

The Experimenter

The Still For Novice Distillers

The 2.5 gallon whiskey still is the perfect starting point if you're new to distilling.

Why Copper?

The use of copper lends qualities to your whiskey and moonshine on the molecular level that other metals just can't match. Sulfur and sulfides are a product of fermentation and are unavoidable. These can carry over into your product and give it a bad taste and nasty hangover. Enter copper. There’s some fancy chemistry that helps convert and binds this devil to the still itself, preventing it from being carried off with your product. This is then removed when you periodically clean your still.

Why Curves?

With our Pot Belly and Onion Head, it’s all about the curves. When you can free yourself from using rigid lines (like cylinders and cones) you can really manipulate the surface area of your still and therefore increase purity and flavor of your product. It also makes the process faster and more efficient. It’s just a lot harder to make a curved still. But we know it’s worth the time and the best distilleries in the world agree. You won’t find straight lines in the top shelf Scotch distilleries. You will find curves. Shapely stills. Because they know, like we know, it’s the best design.
