Our King of the Whiskey stills is named after the King of the Bootleggers, George Remus. A lawyer and prominent bootlegger during the Prohibition era, George Remus controlled much of the whiskey production and distribution in the Midwest. Remus was also known as a gracious host, throwing lavish parties, rumored to be the inspiration for the character Jay Gatsby in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
Modeled after traditional pot stills that have made some of the world’s best whiskey’s, The Remus Pot Still is the best still for the home distiller endeavoring to make great tasting whiskey. All are parts are made from industrial grade, high quality materials sourced by American companies. Then built in our workshop in Missouri, the whiskey barrel capital of the world.
