Gin Pot Still

The infusion of botanicals is essential for distilling Gin, and this is done through the addition of a gin basket to your Pot Still. This allows for the infusion of botanical flavours into the vapour. A gin basket can be bypassed if needed, so that your Pot Still can still be used for other spirits as required.

Our gin Pot Stills start from 150 litres, and are built from copper or stainless steel. When choosing stainless steel, the bottom and side shell of the Still are made from stainless steel, but the neck of the pot is built from copper.

Our Gin Pot Stills can be built with an array of swan neck options, and the condenser is a shell and tube designed by our Head Engineer, built from copper.

Factors to consider.

Whatever the set-up you choose, there are some common factors to consider when deciding on your ideal installation.

The building that houses your distillery can have a big influence on your distillery set-up. Think about:

  • Is this your final set-up or are you thinking about relocating?
  • Can your floor sustain the weight of the distilling equipment?
  • How high are your ceilings?
  • Building entrance for bringing in large equipment
  • Utilities such as electricity, gas, water and steam
  • Waste management


How will you automate your distillation process? Automation factors could include:

  • The Pot Still temperature
  • The temperature of the distillation
  • The cuts performed during the distillation process

The size of your Pot Still is dependent on:

  • The volume of spirits you plan to produce
  • Available space in your location
  • Your projected growth and planned work schedule

Consider the various temperature control methods, including:

  • Pot Stills can be heated by electrical immersion elements or steam
  • Electrical heating is only recommended for Stills less than 2,700 litres in size, after this steam is used
  • Column Stills are heated by steam
  • Water and glycol can both be used as coolants
  • Cold water tanks and fermenters can also be part of the cooling process
