Second hand pot stills

Postby newwhiskyworld » Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:31 am

Does anyone have an idea where one would go to find a second hand pot still? If you do know, do you also know how much they cost?

Just one for my own curisity - don;t think there is anything I could do from a semi in suburban Brighton!

Not sure where you would find one, but the use of such a thing in suburban Brighton (if it's the UK version) is certainly illegal. Sadly :(

I would think most second hand stills would be well used, maybe to the point of unusable. It would seem that the only second hand stills that would be in usable condition would be those from a distillery that has closed. IIRC, Kilkerran was able to obtain the old Ben Wyvis stills.
