Owning a still is perfectly legal. Distilling alcohol for consumption is governed by several state and federal laws. We do not offer legal advice. Check with your state and federal laws to determine what laws apply, according to your intended use. For further information go online tohttp://www.ttb.gov/ponl/permits-online.shtml
.Like all still manufacturers, we are required to keep records of our sales. We have sold hundreds of stills and have never had any governmental agency approach us in any way. A court order would be necessary and we just don’t think it’s worth the time and trouble to pursue the home artisan that enjoys the hobby, but like always, use some common sense.
