Chinese pot still

Postby Rob Allanson » Mon Nov 23, 2009 3:02 pm

A story has emerged from China that distilling may go back to at least 1912, in termes of the nation using pot stills.
The news broke during an interview to see some abandoned pot still in Tsingtao Beer factory.
Tsingtao Bee is the largest Chinese beer company and the history can trace back to 1903 by German and British Merchants as Nordic Brewery Co., Ltd., Tsingtao Branch.
In the story, the pot still was build in 1912, and the first Chinese Whisky, the first Chinese Brandy, and the first Chinese Champagne (?) were all manufactured here.
