Whisky still for NSW customer

Many people are getting on the micro and nano distillery bandwagon and using a copper still.  I think this is a great way to add style and creativity to a market long dominated by boring corporates.  I have found that my business is growing with the new startups because I will discuss and customise a copper still with potential clients and manufacture a product that suits their requirements exactly.

There are a few limitations: I can make up to 660 litre boilers and columns that are 4″ to 12″ diameter.  Heating is by immersion elements up to 15kW and a 660 litre boiler, for example, will have 2-3 of this size element.  I also make power control boxes from 2.4kW (10A) to 3 phase 15kW boxes, all with manual control sing a potentiometer.

I aim to serve my customers in a personal way and ensure they live the dream and create their unique product.

If you know what you are looking for and can draw a sketch, I’ll make it. Otherwise we can work together to design what you need and I’ll put together a proposal for your copper still with an itemised spreadsheet so you can see all the elements and the price of each element – copper boiler, pot still belly, swan neck, bubble tees, bubble/seive plates, dephlegmator, bend, condenser, parrot, gin basket – all in copper and all polished beautifully.

If you require a licence from the ATO you’ll need a proforma invoice and I have clients who have received their licences with my invoices.

Shipping a copper still around Australia is not as expensive as you might expect and to give you an idea it will cost between AU$250 (for a 50L still) and $1800 (for a 660L still) to ship from Perth to the east coast depending on the size you purchase.  This includes the marineply box that I make to hold all the bits and bobs.  You will find unpacking easy as my boxes are screwed together at strategic panels so you are not fighting with a claw hammer to remove deeply embedded nails.  All joints that are not screwed are reinforced and glued.
