At the heart of our distillery is our wonderful still called The Claire. She is a 60 litre alembic copper still with additional column to increase the abv. She is heated by fire and used to make our Windsor Batch gin.
Rafferty is our 5 litre rotary evaporator that distills gin in a vacuum. We set the vacuum to start evaporation at 50 degrees. At such a low temperature the flavours of the botanicals are more refined as they don’t get scorched by heat. We will be using this still to produce our exclusive batches however a lot more testing and trialing needs to be done first!
The windsor still is our 25 litre T500 with alembic copper dome. We use it for producing smaller batches like our Fireside batch the Country garden batch.
Eton is our small copper alembic still that we use for flavour combinations testing. The most it will distil is enough for 2 bottles but can achieve this in just over an hour.
