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?

    Stills can be made from a wide variety of materials, including aluminum, brass, iron, glass, steel or clay. However, the majority of alcohol stills today are made out of either stainless steel or copper. Although more expensive, copper is preferable to steel, not only to preserve ancient traditions but because of its unique characteristics. Copper has been used for centuries. Old time moonshiners in the Appalachian hills used copper. Modern commercial distilleries use it too.

    Why Alembic?

    The alembic is the oldest and most recognizable design for stills. Its ancient origins can be traced back to the works of early alchemists who conducted the first documented, scientific experiments with distillation. The curvy onion-shape is iconic. It is believed that the alembic takes its name from the Arabic “al-anbiq,” meaning still, and from the Greek ambix, which means cup or pot. Some dictionaries define Alembic as “obsolete” but nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to home-craft distillation.
