Old Pilot’s Gin from Croatia was elected Best London Dry Style Gin at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2019! Congrats to the Old Pilot’s Team! And this is the message HB and Tomislav sent us:
“Dear iStill thank you! As you know, we always say that all this would never have happened without iStill technology, knowledge and guidance! This is joint success! Cheers to the iStill family!!!”
Last week we made vodka with the iStill 2000. We had a bunch of heads and tails from previous gin runs and decided to clean them up. We filled the boiler with 1900 liters of 30%. Running the unit at 100% power (36 kW) helped us hit 96.5% (193 proof) with ease.
