What we do
Copper Still Company will implement your own design or help design a copper still to suit your needs. From a pot still to a column still, or a combination for whisky, vodka, gin, rum, or brandy.
We use copper as much as possible in our stills. Design is important to us, but quality paramount! Ultimately we want you to have a still that looks like a piece of art, but at prices way lower than anyone could build locally.
Copper Still Co ensures the quality of your final still meets with our rigorous standards and attention to detail. We focus on matching the design to the application but use our experience to anticipate any issues to smoothly transition to the final solution.
Where needed, Copper Still Co will provide a turnkey solution from design to installation. We will install your still anywhere in the world, or provide detailed instructions for your own installation
