Pot stills are used for distilling spirits such as whisky or brandy in batches rather than continuously.

These stills are located in Laphroaig distillery, Islay, Scotland and were originally made in Edinburgh. I liked this side-on perspective along part of the row of stills.

    that’s really cool. great patterns here and an interesting description. never seen those before.

  • Thank you, Adrian. The big copper stills as part of the whisky process are quite impressive. Worth visiting a distillery if you ever get the chance to come to Scotland – even if you don’t drink the amber nectar. Kasia
