The Story

We purchased an iStill2000 from Odin and have it running almost around the clock making vodka.

The grain that we use is very unique compared to your typical vodka as we use long grain white rice, which meant that our heads and tails cuts are very different than traditional grain distillations. The flavor profile that we are trying to capture with the rice necessitates variations from the default iStill settings, something that we were struggling with.

In order to help, Odin flew in to our still and spent several days with us dialing in the iStill to our unique needs. The results…..nothing less than impressive. We doubled our yield in half the time it had been taking, running off 96% alcohol in one run. One of the most impressive characteristics of the iStill is the ability to distill with precision and purity, in just one run.

Odin went above and beyond in his visit and is truly a partner with our still. We also ordered an iStill5000 and can’t wait to get it online to more than double our production. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us.
