Continuous Column Distillation

Recommended Posts

Most folks out there making great whiskey reach a point fast where they realize their distillery is not making enough whiskey to meet future anticipated demand.

The vast majority of us have all started on batch or pot stills, which are difficult to grow production with as demand increases.

Any folks out there considering adding a single pass continuous column to their operation?

If your distillery and whiskey sales are growing is a continuous still and option you have considered?

I have almost finished building a continuous column, to use for stripping run only, will still use pot for spirit run. Have done a few short test runs only.

They are so energy and space efficient. 

and a big bonus they don't need cooling water or chiller for condenser.

I run a Vendome 12" Continuous. Most people cannot wrap their mind around it but columns can be "tuned" or run differently to get a taste you prefer.

Hi Toddy,

I have never encountered a 12" column from Vendome before. Is it a single pass or just a stripping column?
