You're here because you're looking for your first distilling equipment, right? Unsure which set is best for you and which still to choose? This seemingly difficult question is very easy to answer if you know what you want to achieve with it. Don't worry if this is your first encounter with such equipment! Each piece comes with our proprietary, detailed, illustrated, and colorful user manual written so that even someone who is trying home alcohol production for the first time won't have a problem. So let's get started!

1. Are you only interested in pure, neutral alcohol? Do you produce a lot of tinctures and require a neutral product that won't mask the taste of the herbs and fruits used with its sharpness? Do you only enjoy pure vodka without unnecessary yeast aromas and a sharp, pungent taste? Choose a copper reflux still!. You'll easily obtain a product with a strength of over 96% without flavor or aroma residues. The better equipped the still, the easier, faster, and simpler the process will be. If you know how much you want to spend, try our guide: which distiller to choose for 1000, 2000, 3000, and 5000 PLN?

2. Pure vodka and tincture alcohol are important to you, but do you also want to produce flavored distillates? A bit of whiskey, maybe plum brandy, sometimes some apples? A copper reflux still will also work well here. Copper stills are very versatile and can produce many different types of distillates, including flavored ones. The easiest to use, most recommended, and beginner-friendly column is the Elite still!

3. Don't want odorless alcohol, but rather distillates with a raw material flavor - fruity and grainy? Do you want to try different flavors, and process those wines from the cellar? Choose a copper pot still. It's the most traditional and simplest equipment. Here, the operator deals the cards, dividing the distillate reception into fractions, which are then combined - like a master distiller at a distillery. If you have small amounts of wine and tinctures or want to experiment with recipes - choose a micro pot-still. If you're interested in more flavored alcohols from different raw materials - we recommend the classic pot-still.

4. Maybe you want to start with fruit and grain distillates, but you don't rule out expanding and upgrading the equipment in the future to be able to also obtain 96%? You can choose a copper pot still with expansion flanges. Thanks to the flanges, you can equip your still with various attachments (flavoring for gin or reflux to reduce losses and strengthen the product), but also expand it into a complete reflux still. You can read more about expanding the pot-still in the Article.

5. If, on the other hand, you want to approach the subject professionally and uncompromisingly and produce your whiskey, bourbon, brandy, or calvados - choose a copper plate still. These are the types of equipment used by craft distilleries worldwide. You will obtain the best "hearts," meaning the best distillate with minimal waste - and also an amazing look and pleasure to work with beautiful equipment. You can add many professional accessories to the plate still - a gin basket, a cleaning attachment (for cleaning without disassembly), or a spherical copper top (foam disperser) - all of this allows you to create the best machine on the market. You can place it on any tank you choose.

 Which heating method to choose? Of course, electric - is cheaper, safer, and more accurate than gas burners. Our guide "Electric or Gas Heating?" talks more about this.
