Blog: By George! It's a whiskey still being built in two minutes - video

James Wilmore | 21 January 2015

Ever wondered how a whiskey still gets built? 

Come on, you must have done!? Well, maybe not.

But here anyway is a fascinating little video from the folks at Virginia-based A. Smith Bowman Distillery. The speeded up clip shows the installation of its latest still, a 500 gallon effort named 'George', after the father of the orginal founders, the Bowman brothers. 

He is joining Mary, another still, named after Mary Hite Bowman, George’s wife, and the mother of the Bowman brothers. 

Mary, George... it's beginning to sound like a 1960s folk ensemble!
