The thought of owning a small family business has always appealed to my family. Make a product that people need and want, but make it well enough to sign your name on it. Be proud enough of your work that you are not ashamed for people to know it came out of your shop. This is how Hillbilly Stills started and how it is run on a day to day basis.
Popcorn Sutton was the father of moon shining and perfected his craft to a point of being known as the leader of his craft and skill. This is how Hillbilly Stills wants to be known and will strive to create the perfect still each and every time.
We are a small family operation, in a small town in Western Kentucky, with big dreams and goals of becoming the best in the industry. Every still is hand made, one at a time, made the way we would want one if we were to buy from someone else. Craftsmanship and beauty are the main parts of each and every still we ship out.
We hope you enjoy your still and have as much fun with it, as we here at Hillbilly Stills have supplying you with the best the industry has to offer. We like to say here at Hillbilly Stills that we are the King of Copper.!
Under Federal rules administered by ATF, the legality depends on how you use stills. You may not produce alcohol unless you qualify as a distilled spirits plant. You can make ethanol with a Alcohol Fuel Producer permit. There is also one for Industrial Alcohol. Please apply at TTB.Gov. You can call and have someone help you with application. I find it was very easy.
However, owning a small still and using it for other purposes is allowed. You should also check with your State and local authorities - their rules may differ.
Hillbilly Stills is a business that specializes in professional & home-distilling equipment, supplies and knowledge. We do not sell alcohol or promote illegal activity. We deal in Micro Distillery, Ethanol, and Water Distillation equipment and supplies. We find this alone is big business. This market has not been touched. But for countries like New Zealand and Australia, it's legal to do more. It is hopeful that in the near future there will be legislation home distillation legal. We urge you to contact your congressmen on this subject.
We will also ship to APO / FPO military bases (army post office) .
