The almighty 5 gallon whiskey still will make all your distilling wishes come true. Fermentation is a breeze in 5 gallon buckets and the heat-up time is fair deal.   A typical run lasts for a couple of hours, and should product between 1 - 2 gallons of your preferred spirit.  Its optimum size and efficiency make it by far our most popular product.

Our handcrafted stills are made of 100% high quality copper. All welding / soldering is lead free (the body welds are brass wire, smaller connections are tin-silver).This still kit includes everything that is pictured: pot belly (still bottom), onion head (onion top), the worm (condensing unit), thermometer rated in Fahrenheit and Celsius and an instruction guide. Please note that we cannot offer distillation advice or help without proof of Federal Distillers Permit.

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.
