It isn't hard to make great spirits at home, but you do have to play by the rules. The use and possession of stills and other distilling equipment – while perfectly legal in New Zealand – can be heavily regulated by foreign, federal and/or local laws and may require permits and licenses or in some cases, is illegal. Still Spirits recommends you check home distilling regulations with your local authorities before purchasing and using distilling equipment. 

The information in our livestreams is intended for licensed distillers and those who live in regions where distillation is legal. Our discussions of distilling products and processes are for informational purposes only.
