Still Spirits Turbo 500 Still (T500) is the finest piece of equipment we have seen for the small producer, capable of distilling alcohol to just over 93% ABV. The quality of the alcohol is exceptional, however it still benefits from treatment through a EZ Carbon Filter. This increases the taste, quality, and removes further impurities.
The machine is capable of distilling 25 litres of wash in one go and is superb for essential oil extraction, fuel ethanol production or alcohol distillation (licence is required in UK).
It is illegal to manufacture spirits in the UK without a distillers licence which is required under the provisions of section 12 of the Alcoholic Liquor Duties Act 1979 and this includes manufacture for own/domestic use.

The main reason for the exceptional quality is the water flow is controlled at all points. It’s therefore essential to get a controlled water supply into the column. This is why a tap connector is used. The connector should be fitted to a tap with a screw thread or one with an areator (after the areator disc has been removed). If this can't be done we can supply a rubber end as a final option. This needs to be ordered seperately. As we said earlier, the reason the quality is so good is that we fully control the outlet water temperature by careful restriction of the water flow.
