@shuchirSuri aka Mr Food Talk Visited Abercrombie and co! The guys who make the copper pot stills in which whisky is distilled.
Most people remember their first sight of a Scotch Whisky stillroom, dominated by the majestic copper pot stills. A visit to Abercrombie’s in Alloa is equally memorable. Copper has been used for centuries for the distillation of whisky and indeed for other spirits. It conducts heat efficiently (whether in the stills or in the condensing part of the operation); it is relatively durable and easy to clean. In skilled hands, it can be worked into the desired shape by forming, hammering and welding. Copper’s chief virtue for distillers. Depending on the flavour profile called for by the blenders, some such compounds are indeed considered to be essential to the final character of the new make spirit and, in due course, to the matured spirit after the necessary period in oak casks. #LoveScotch #scotchwithshuchir #YellowSweater
