The Table Top Still from

Table Top Still and Still Accesories

 Very similar stills are used in New Zealand for making alcohol. It's legal to  distil small amounts of alcohol there, and they've developed some interesting products.

This one's for the distillation of water and will produce a bottle of distilled product in a couple of hours.

It runs on electricity, is very efficient and silent and is aircooled. No need for running water.

Distilled water is perfect for adding to your liquers and for blending drinks

There's more about the still and it's many uses here 

These are the best selling stills in the UK!!

Safe and simple to use

Those in the know say to use a triple still yeast to make a wash for the still.

Still includes a smart pack of carbon and smart rings

The still works more efficiently and smoother if you add a packet of smart rings to the still with the wash. If you've already bought a still off us give us shout, and we'll send you a free packet of smart rings!!!

It takes about three hours to produce a bottle of distillate.

Pur away the first teaspoon ful as it tastes of the metal coil, then take off just 75cl of distillate.

This will be at about 60%, if you make it up to a litre with cold water it gives you about 40%.

You can pull off up to a litre of distillate but after the first 75cl the taste is not as good!

Home Distillation Handbook-


Purely for the sake of interest! We know none of our customers would ever distil alcohol! The book deals with making alcohol from the turbo yeast to distillation.


The Home Distillation Handbook, by Ola Norrman, describes how to make alcoholic spirits at home. Possibly the best book written on the subject, it describes in detail how you can make your own spirits.

Updated yearly, the Swedish version has sold over 100,000 books. And this in Sweden, where a super thriller sells 7,000 books in the same time frame! We now also offer the English version of "Hemmaframstallning av Sprit," the leading book in its field in Sweden for over 20 years.  NOTE: This process is illegal in some countries, as is even the construction of a distillation apparatus following the drawings in the book. It is however, information that can be read in all democratic countries. The information given in the book is not intended to encourage the manufacture of alcohol.

Alcohol Hydrometer 0 to 100% range

Probably the best all round alcohol hydrometer for use with any still.

Allows you to check the alcohol content of distilled product

Especially useful for the beginner, it quickly tells you if you are doing it wrong ! Accurate and easy to use.

temperature comensated so you can check the alcohol as it comes out of the still

Alcohol Hydrometer 75 to 100% Range

Temperature compensated hydrometer, especially for use with reflux stills. Accurate in the hard to read range above 70%!

Not suitable for the stills on this page!

A small thermometer allows for temperature compensation so you get a very accurate reading.

10 degrees of temperature can mean an error in alcohol reading of 5%!

Especially important for those who are after the pure!

Alcohol Hydrometer Standard

Glass hydrometer that will give you an indication of the alcohol content on distilled products.

Scale goes from 0 to 100%

It seems to be fairly accurate especially on anything above 40%!

Alcohol Hydrometer 30 to 60% band

Short scale for accurate reading of distilled alcohol-Temperature compensated

38 Cm long, it's a big hydrometer. Has an internal thermometer so you can compensate for alcohol temperature.

There is an easily read table that allows you to adjust your reading , a variation of  10 degrees in the liquid can cause an error in reading of 5%.

That 5% can mean a big difference when you start drinking!

Alcohol Hydrometer German Made

0 to 100% band,  better quality than the standard.

Slightly longer scale and a bit more robust! It's the one on the left in the picture!

Raschig Rings

A litre bag of Raschig rings.

For use in reflux stills, they allow for smaller columns. These are about 6mm and high quality ceramic. They are designed specifically for use in stills and are not to be confused with the inferior products you can obtain from aquarium suppliers.

They should be cleaned periodically to prevent unwanted odours, you can do this by putting them in the dishwasher.

The bag weighs just over a Kg.

Thermostatic Heater 42 to 55oC

Absolutely useless for fermenting wine or beer! Do not buy for any fermenting purpose

Thermostatic heater for the bucket still
