GENIO stills are ideal for the production of high alcohol content spirits such as vodkas, as well as rich tasting and aromatic gins, rums, whiskies and brandies. In comparison to the more traditional manually operated column plate stills, the performance of GENIO stills is unapproachable in terms of efficiency, speed, size, product purity, and ease of operation. The procedure for operating the GENIO still consists of:
- Pouring the wash into the boiler (20 to 500 liters– depending on the model)
- Connecting the cooling water input and output
- Turning on the power
- Placing collection vessels next to the still
- Selecting the desired distillation parameters from a touch screen computer
- Selecting START
Subsequent steps in spirit production will be overseen by the computer automatically with accuracy unreachable by human control. GENIO currently in a league of its own, without any real competition.
Through the state of the art distillation column design and computer controlled needle valve, GENIO series stills are able to achieve distillates in excess of 95% ABV from first to last drop, with minimal transfer of flavour and aromatic properties, in order to produce pure and clean tasting spirits ideal for production of vodka or neutral spirit for subsequent production of gin.
To obtain taste and aroma rich products in the production of Gins, Whiskies, Rums and Brandies, the GENIO series still offers Simple Pot Still Distillation mode, which reduces the amount of reflux occurring in the relatively short column and hence minimizes the number of theoretical distillations. The operation of the still in the Simple Pot Still Distillation mode provides the operator with full manual control in order to hand craft their spirit using their intuition and expertise with minimal reliance on GENIO’s distilling intelligence.
GENIO series stills are versatile, as they can produce pure and clean tasting spirits in excess of 95% ABV through GENIO’s distilling intelligence, or taste rich products with as much hands on control as desired by the most demanding artisan distillers.
