Is making my own spirits safe and legal?

The Still Spirits process involves the controlled manufacture of alcohol from a known mix of nutrients, sugar and yeast. The distillate is then cleaned with activated carbon to remove unwanted flavours. Following the instructions will result in pure clean alcohol that in most cases has less byproducts than alcohol produced from more traditional sources.

Home distilling is legal in New Zealand but not in most other countries. In most situations local authorities appear reluctant to move against citizens producing alcohol for their own use. However authorities in all countries take a very dim view of anyone producing alcohol for sale.
