Scratch and Dent Stills

Make Your Own Whiskey

Occasionally we receive returns. The most common reason is due to being damaged in shipping. So, rather than scrap them, we offer those who consider themselves a little on the handy side a chance save a bit of cash and for us to recoup a bit of our loss. Here's a bit about the stills

The Bad:

  • Still may be used.
  • Still may be dented, scratched, or otherwise damaged.
  • A returned still is not typically as shiny as a new still because of use and exposure.
  • There is a very small chance the still may have a leak.

    The Good:

    • We still honor our 100% satisfaction cash-back guarantee.
    • We still honor our 2-year warranty.
    • We hope by honoring our warranty and return policies that you will make an honest attempt to repair your still. However, if it turns out that you are still dissatisfied, or are uncomfortable with hammering out a dent, or soldering a leak, we'd be happy to refund your money (though we assure you, it's quite easy).

    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.
