Definizione

Apparatus of choice to produce the world's top distilled spirits. 1

Nota

A pot still simply collects and condenses the alcohol vapours coming off the boiling mash. The simple pot still is a large enclosed vessel, heated by direct firing on the bottom or by steam coils within the vessel, with a cylindrical bulb at its top leading to a partially cooled vapour line. The bulb and vapour line separate entrained liquid particles from the vapour on its way to the final condenser. 2

Contesto

Among connoisseurs of fine spirits, it is generally agreed that the best spirits are made in pot stills, which contribute to a broader flavour profile that is generally associated with spirits produced in multiple-column stills. 3
