    What ever happened to iStill?

    Exciting times ahead! We are working on three new innovations. Doing final fine-tuning. I expect to introduce the new tech we are working on via our iStill Blog in the coming three weeks. For pics, see: https://istillblog.com/2019/02/08/designing-new-technologies-at-istill-hq/ Also, I'll be flying over to the USA tomorrow. Trade show and then, in less than a week from now, we give another 4-day distilling course in Madison. Still some places left. If you wanna register, please reach out to Veronika@iStillmail.com. Regards, Odin.

    Today, I visited our customer Den Hool Whisky. They use our equipment to mash and distill single malt whisky: https://istillblog.com/2019/02/06/visiting-den-hool-whisky/ Regards, Odin.

    Today we bottled 4,000 bottles of gin at the Amsterdam iStill Center! Contract distilling for other craft distillers is really taking of! We are currently offering help with distilling to craft distillers in Europe, but expect to branch out to North America as well. https://istillblog.com/2019/02/01/contract-distilling-at-the-istill-center/ Regards, Odin.

    Hi Richard, if you could explain a bit more what you are looking for in terms of ingredients and procedure and end goal, I can dive in deeper. Please know that the iStills - in combination with the Extractor option - help a lot of our customers at making extracts as well as essences. Extract is organically alive and colorful. Essence is an extract that is distilled. Most customers use alcohol to make essences and/or extracts. We have one or two that use water. Hope this info helps. Regards, Odin.

    And here is their first gold medal. So here is the time path: they wanted to make gin and started recipe development like a few months ago; then they came by at the iStill University for training and recipe perfection; we made their first batch of 2000 bottles in December, which one them a gold medal today! Congrats to the team! Regards, Odin.

    Our Chinese customers are back! They sold out the first batch of their gin in a week or so. We are making new batches for them as we speak. They do the bottling themselves. Flying over to the Netherlands for bottling, some fun. The weekend they'll spend in London, collecting their first gin award, and on Monday and Tuesday they will bottle some more. Total of another 6000 bottles. Half of which will travel to Hong Kong by plane. The rest will follow by ship. I personally love this project, because it involves all of our expertise: recipe development, distilling equipment, and contract distilling. Here's a pic of the merry bunch! Regards, Odin.
