My Own Illicit Still

I have often wondered how much fun it would be to have an illicit still. I understand legislation exists which allows a limited amount of home distillation of spirit and there is a range of sources from which to procure the required equipment. There will no doubt also be a wide array of You-Tube videos where one can learn the distillation craft, hopefully make an acceptable dram, and maybe even avoid the risk of going blind.

While this seems quite an idyllic pursuit or hobby, I’m not sure it compares with the thrill of a semi-industrial process secreted away in a remote glen or un-frequented woodland.

I’m off to find a remote and secluded cave to get started. I’ll revisit this topic soon to let you know how I’m getting on.
