Good quality. March 1, 2019
Reviewer: Warren Brull from Oak Hill, FL United States  
I bought this item back in October of 2018 I finally received it in Feb of 2019, did not receive the wheels and  parts still don't have. I have purchased two stills and thousands of other supplies, I am not happy, if I had known it would take this long I wouldn't have paid for it in advance of delivery. Your products are the best,  just takes to long to receive them.

55 gallon Economy Kettle October 31, 2018
Reviewer: Jason from OR  
We got our first Hillbilly still in February 2018.  It was a 26 gallon still with 2 plates, a gin basket and a parrot.  It was our first still ever, and it took us a  little bit to master it.  Every step of the way, Mike has been extremely responsive, answering emails, calls, questions, etc. that have come from me.  He and the HBS team have been friendly, they have been there for us and have bent over backwards to help us.

We recently started selling our products and were swamped with orders, and could not produce enough.  HBS rushed us a new 55 gallon pot for our column, which effectively tripled our capacity.  Throughout this process HBS has been amazing, and we have just ordered our second 55 gallon still from HBS.  

The quality of the work, the responsiveness of the team at HBS, and the spirits that this still has produced has won us 2 international awards, and has really put us on the map.  Had HBS not been as wonderful as they have been, including sending us replacements for various parts without question and without issues, we wouldn't be where we are today.

I am a true fan of the artesenal product that is a HBS, the spirits that can be made with their stills are truly exceptional, and Mike and his whole team have made this whole process great for us.

Now if only I could get Mike to come over and try some of these spirits that we've made with his machine, it would be awesome :)
