Frederica is our first and most wonderful Still. She has a 200 litre capacity and is a copper column alembic still. Handmade by copper artisans in Portugal she is a work of art and produces the majority of our spirits. All stills are traditionally given female names and Frederica is derived from our parents Freda and Eric, adding a little more heritage to our production.
As we have grown and expanded the business we brought Venetia onboard giving us an additional 120 litre capacity in our production. Her name, along with all of our stills, is a character from the same named novel by author Georgette Heyer. She writes about strong, characterful and independent women, something as four sisters we can relate to.
Arabella is an exact replica of Frederica and Venetia and plays a vital role in our spirits product development. With a mere 3 litre capacity, she may be small, but she's oh so mighty. She is responsible for distilling our new flavours and experimental products and nothing gets to Frederica and Venetia without being passed by her first.
