Still Starter Kits
In the past it has been nearly impossible to produce top quality Spirits & Liqueurs at home. Now with Wineworks providing a full range of Spirit Starter Kits based on the world famous “Still Spirits” flavourings, you can!
You can now produce a bottle of top quality Whisky, Gin, Rum or Bourbon for around £1.60 a bottle (75cl). How about Peach Schnapps, Coconut Rum or Cherry Brandy for £2.35 a bottle (75cl). Even fantastic Cream Liqueurs in the style of Baileys.
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.
