Our Still Has a New Home
Since moving into our new store we have been, slowly, moving production here and today we got the still moved and started a distillation of Witch Hazel. After that is finished we will start getting caught up with some co-op distillations of Sage and Rosemary that Joshua Francy brought us.
We are very excited to have the still moved as this will allow us to run it much more often and we won’t have to buy so much ice as it has it’s own cold water source now. Previously we had a bucket of ice water that was pumped into the condenser which draws the steam from the column and cools it down. This was rather cumbersome as we had to monitor the temperature of the water in the bucket and add more ice to keep it cool as well as remove water so it did not overflow.
Next time you are here be sure to stop in and ask if we are distilling anything, we would love to show you what we are up to.
