  1. Graybeard, thanks for giving your review on the iStill 2000 NextGen. It was great to meet you & the team. The Raleigh/Durham surroundings are beautiful, and the mss and I have sweet memories of the great steak house you took us to. Here's a link with some pictures of your iStill 5000 NextGen. It's currently being crated and will leave the Netherlands on a ship to Baltimore in just a few days: https://istillblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/19/istill-5000-ready-for-dispatch/ Dsking416, thanks for the feedback on the iStills, on the drinks Chris and Ashley from the New World Distillery make, and for brightening the workshop with your (and Brandon's) amazing cocktails. Did you enjoy the 3-day workshop we gave and the information we shared? If there is any feedback, positive or negative, you can share, that would be very much appreciated. Especially, since I hear there's quite a lot of North American distillers considering to sign up for the next course in Utah, coming September. On the never ending question "what happens to iStill", here's an update: We are proud to announce that Australia's biggest wine maker, producing among others the fifth most valuable wine brand in the world, decided to fit its distilleries with iStills. They made that decision after having dispatched a team of engineers and product developers on a three week trip around the world, visiting still manufacturers in China, the US, Scotland, Germany, and - finally - the Netherlands. When I first met them, they anticipated buying a continuous still from a US manufacturer and a big plated still from Germany. And maybe a smaller gin still from my company. After having seen the iStills in action, they decided to cancel the pre-orders from the US and German still builders and they ordered three big iStill distilleries instead. Makes me feel very proud indeed! Regards, Odin.
  2. New iSill Trainings soon! https://istillblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/09/new-complete-and-certified-distilling-trainings/ Regards, Odin.
  3. Currently in transit to Utah and North Carolina. Will reach out and see if some are willing to chime in, Villa! Regards, Odin. PS: We shipped another i500 to Ireland just yesterday. Next unit will also be an i500. To Denmark. After that the two i5000's will go. To two distilleries in the USA.
  4. And here's a few pictures of another few iStills 2000 NextGen that just left us. https://istillblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/01/shipping-more-istills-2000-nextgen/ I am flying out to Utah the day after tomorrow to give a 3-day workshop on advanced distilling. After that I'll hop over to North Carolina to help set-up a distillery. If anyone is near and feels like having a drink with me: please reach out. First round is on me! Regards, Odin.
  5. Hi there, Here's an article on advanced column design. Bit iStill-oriented, because it is about how we further optimized our columns for a total of 100% production increase: https://istillblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/30/total-column-optimization/ Regards, Odin.
  6. An update on what's going on in the Netherlands and in the USA: https://istillblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/whats-up-odin-2/?preview_id=9239&preview_nonce=2d09fa3ed8 Regards, Odin.
  7. Okay, the show is in Dutch, and half of it is about a special villa, but the rest is about award winning master distiller Bart Joosten, making his single malt whisky and gin: http://www.uitzendinggemist.net/aflevering/389727/Binnenstebuiten.html Regards, Odin.
  8. Today I visited Schouten Distillery again. Their gin is ready and tastes awesome. And their distillery looks great! https://istillblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/21/schouten-distillery-2/?preview_id=9219&preview_nonce=bf4c6fc12c Regards, Odin.
  9. We are shipping out four more iStills 500 NextGen. All units have full distillation capabilities (1 to 40 redistillations), and can mash and be used as additional fermenters as well. Regards, Odin.
