Copper Pot Still Distillation Equipment

A copper pot still is a traditional apparatus used in the distillation of spirits, particularly in the production of whiskey, brandy, rum, and some types of gin. It consists of a large pot (the "boiler") typically made of copper, a material favored for its excellent heat conductivity and chemical properties.
At Pretank, we exude confidence in our ability to design and manufacture Copper Pot Still Distillation Equipment ranging from 200L to 3000L.

| Features

Copper pot stills have several distinctive features that contribute to their effectiveness in distillation and the quality of the spirits produced:

Material: Copper is the primary material used in the construction of pot stills. Its excellent heat conductivity allows for efficient heating and cooling during the distillation process. Additionally, copper has catalytic properties that help remove unwanted sulfur compounds and other impurities from the spirit, resulting in a smoother and more refined final product.

Pot Shape: Copper pot stills typically have a bulbous base and a narrow neck, which helps concentrate the flavors and aromas of the distilled liquid. The shape of the pot can vary depending on the distillery's preferences and the type of spirit being produced.

Swan Neck: The swan neck, or lyne arm, is the curved pipe that connects the pot still's neck to the condenser. Its shape and angle play a role in controlling the reflux of vapor and influencing the character of the final spirit.

Condenser: Copper pot stills usually feature a copper condenser, which is a coiled tube through which the vapor passes to be cooled and condensed back into liquid form. Copper's conductivity aids in the efficient removal of heat from the vapor, resulting in a smoother distillate.

| Structure 

Boiler or Pot: The main vessel where the fermented liquid mixture, known as the "wash" or "mash," is heated. It's usually made of copper due to its excellent heat conductivity and chemical properties. The shape of the pot can vary, but it typically has a bulbous base and a narrower neck.

Swan Neck: Also called the "lyne arm," this is a curved pipe that connects the neck of the pot to the condenser. Its shape and angle help control the reflux of vapor and influence the character of the final spirit.

Condenser: A vital part of the still, the condenser is where the alcohol vapor is cooled and condensed back into liquid form. It typically consists of a coiled copper tube submerged in a cooling bath, such as cold water. As the vapor passes through the condenser, it loses heat and transforms into liquid, which is collected as distillate.

Cooling Bath: The condenser coil is usually submerged in a cooling bath, which can be filled with cold water or another coolant. This helps maintain the temperature necessary for condensation and ensures efficient cooling of the vapor.

Spirit Safe: In traditional pot still distillation, a spirit safe is a locked compartment located between the condenser and the collection vessel. It allows the distiller to monitor and control the flow of the distillate, ensuring that only the highest-quality spirit is collected.

Collection Vessel: The container where the distilled spirit is collected. It can be a tank, vat, or barrel, depending on the distillery's setup and the desired end product.

Heating Source: Typically, pot stills are heated from beneath the boiler using a heat source such as gas, steam, or direct fire. This heats the wash and creates vapor, which rises through the still.

The structure of a copper pot still is designed to efficiently separate alcohol from the wash through the process of distillation while imparting desirable flavors and aromas to the final spirit. The use of copper, with its unique properties and historical significance, is a defining characteristic of traditional pot stills.
