Malt Whisky Distillation Process:


The wash is then ready for the stills. The shape of the still is one of the most important factors in the whisky-making process, as it can have a decisive influence on the final character of the malt whisky: for instance, a still with a short neck will produce a whisky with heavier oils and a more intense flavour, whereas lighter-flavoured whiskies with less heavy oils will emerge from a still with a long or high neck.
