Is it Legal?
It is illegal to manufacture spirits in the UK without a distiller's licence which is required under the provisions of section 12 of the Alcoholic Liquor Duties Act 1979 and this includes manufacture for "own/domestic use".
Public Notice 39 - "Spirits production in the UK" dated July 2006 provides further information about HM Revenue & Customs' requirements.
If you require further assistance then please contact the National Advice Service on Telephone 0845 010 9000 or www.hmrc.gov.uk Where you can obtain & view Public Notice 39.
As Easy as 1-2-3
1: Make Your Wash
Simply add 6kg of granulated sugar to 21 litres of water at 30°C, along with a sachet of Triple Distilled Yeast and a sachet of Turbo Carbon. Allow to ferment for 7 days. When finished you will have a 14% ABV wash ready to be distilled.
2: Distill Your Spirit
Once you have cleared your wash with Turbo Clear, it is ready to go through the still. Using the Air Still you can distill 4 litres of wash at a time, producing 700-800ml of spirit at approximately 60% ABV.
3: Mix & Enjoy!
Dilute your 60% spirit down to 40% ABV with water, following our handy guide. This will produce just over 7 litres. Then add your choice of Still Spirits essence, mix well, and sit back and enjoy both the fantastic quality and the savings!
