The dominant players in the alcoholic beverage industry generally have dedicated stills and systems for a certain type of product. More common in the craft distilling sector is to have flexible equipment to enable multiple products to be made in one distillation system. As a general rule we try to advise people away from this idea for fears of cross contamination between products. However we do manufacture hybrid systems to meet the demands of this market.
Hybrid stills are generally a combination of pot and column stills interlinked with piping, instruments and diverter valves. Different permutations of valving permit different process paths, with each path containing their own distillation properties for the spirits to be made.
