Exploring the Craft: Unveiling the Stills at Seed & Spirit Distillery

When it comes to crafting exquisite spirits, the heart of the process lies within the stills. At Seed & Spirit Distillery, the art of distillation comes to life through a collection of distinct stills, each contributing to the creation of exceptional liquors that tantalize the senses and leave a lasting impression. Let’s take a closer look at the fascinating stills that shape the spirits at Seed & Spirit.

Stilly Strings & Still Murray: A Tribute to Tradition

The journey at Seed & Spirit began with the time-tested elegance of alembic pot stills. Named Stilly Strings and Still Murray, these 250-gallon alembic pot stills represent the essence of the distillery’s origins. The straight pot still design, a classic choice utilized worldwide, forms the foundation of these two stills. It’s a design known for its ability to capture and transport the intricate flavors of the mash or wort, resulting in spirits of unparalleled richness and depth.

The unique charm of the alembic still lies in its necessity for 2-3 distillations per batch to achieve the desired end product. However, the reward is in the distinct flavors it imparts. Seed & Spirit employs these alembic stills to produce signature brands like Whiszcal, A’TIF, Friendly Fire, and Expedition Whiskey. The unmistakable difference in taste speaks volumes about the impact of these stills on the final product.
