State of the art distillation still, capable of producing pure alcohol in excess of 95% ABV or taste rich alcohols using the pot still distillation feature. The still is ideal for recipe development by craft distillers, which can subsequently be replicated on a larger GENIO still for commercial production.
GENIO Still 50
GENIO Still 50 (13 US gallons) is ideal for small batch distillation and intended for recipe development of all types of alcohols. The still comes ready to be plugged into an electrical power outlet and connected to a water source. The still is appropriate for a wide range of audiences, starting with individuals new to distilling, in which case the display on the touch screen will allow them to learn the various settings throughout an automated distillation run, as well as for experienced distillers wanting to develop a recipe on a smaller scale, either in manual or automated mode, which they can later replicate on a larger GENIO still for mass production.

Copper basket is used for treatment of alcohol vapours containing sulfur-based compounds.
These compounds are created during fermentation under certain conditions in small quantities (from 0.0007 mg / drop m³, which is a drop per 200 gal of liquid). Sulfur is noticeable to humans as a “rotten eggs” smell. By allowing the column vapors to pass through the copper basket, sulfur-based compounds will attach themselves to the copper packing within the basket. As a result, one will obtain a cleaner distillate.
In this respect, copper is indispensable and the most effective remedy for ailments such as the smell of “rotten eggs”, but on the other hand it is very prone to oxidation. Particularly after distillation, where it is subjected to temperatures of 100 ° C; and the action of the aggressive alcohol vapors almost immediately oxidizes the copper, turning it green, or even black. These compounds are harmful to humans and the environment.
Therefore, it is important to maintain the copper in its original orange colour. To ensure the copper can be monitored for cleanliness, we have made the copper basket out of glass. This allows us to visually monitor the purity of the copper SPP.
The copper basket may also be used as a gin basket, by replacing the copper SPP with botanicals.
With every Copper Basket 50/100 – we will provide a special device which will assist in cleaning and storage of copper. The following video shows how to use the whole set:
This option provides an opening on top of the tank that is 4 inches in diameter, as opposed to the standard 2 inches. The option will only be available for purchase for directly heated GENIO Still 50 and 100. Jacketed GENIO stills already come with a standard 4 inch diameter opening. Enlarged tank opening provides the ability for a thorough inspection of the tank’s interior and ability to hang botanical bag for gin making.
We offer a small stripping column to be used with our current stills. Stripping columns can be utilized for simple distillation, with a significantly reduced amount of theoretical plates. The stripping column is especially recommended for tanks with an oil jacket, which would be ideal for distilling on the grain, with no risk of scorching solids.
Oil jacket is a special design enabling distilling of alcohol from washes containing solids. In contrast to the directly heated tank, we have a second vessel which is seated in a reservoir. The reservoir contains special oil, as well as corresponding heating elements. Special oil will be included with the Jacket 50 option.
It should be noted that the oil jacket operates at atmospheric pressure, therefore there is no risk of the jacket being over pressurized. The control of oil and its temperature is controlled by a computer.
This option is available for jacketed tanks only. It consists of an electric motor, gear reducer, and a stirrer, mounted on the tank. It provides increased distillation efficiency by stirring on the grain washes in the tank, where the natural (gravitational) exchange and mixing of the charge is difficult.
GENIO Stills are made of stainless steel, and come standard cleaned with special brushes which gives them a matt appearance. Finished stainless steel is fully prepared to work and is protected against aggressive substances.
However, the Mirror Polished SS option is to subject the entire column to additional chemical treatment as well as manual polishing in order to obtain a stainless steel surface with the highest degree of smoothness – the finished surface resembling a mirror.
