Home Distillation w/ Copper Whiskey Still Kit Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 3 Comments
America's craft liquor movement is alive and well as more and more American’s choose to engage in home distillation. As people search for exploring back to basics and simplifying their life home distillation is a natural curiosity for many.
Sure, some home copper stills are used for the creation of herbal remedies, distilled waters, and essential oils, but most people are purchasing their own home copper still for the purpose of learning how to distill their own spirits.
Although technically illegal to distill alchohol at home, here is the juxtaposition: Ten years ago, there were 50 American craft distilleries, and today there are well over 1,000, each with their legal permits and licenses. But where did these new commercial startup distillers hone their skills? Hmm, we think by using their home moonshine still.
Some people believe the illegality rests in the loss of liquor tax revenue and others argue it’s simply a protection of a large monopoly. Recently we heard a third argument regarding potential safety as the liquor is a vapor for much of the process and as such can become an invisible flame.
The sale and purchase of a copper whiskey still is legal if the copper stills are labeled to be used for distillation of water, creation of herbal concoctions, or production of essential oils.
We know of dozens of people that have tried their hand at home distillation and if they gave up found their copper whiskey still quite useful for making of homemade oils, ointments, and liquid herbs.
