Day 256 - Samuel's tour of Tobermory Distillery
Then we went to the mash-room where there was a vat which had a giant copper dome. The vat was empty except for a spinning stirrer with spikes on it.
Then we went into the still room, which had 4 extremely tall copper stills. This was probably the biggest room. The stills are used to seperate the light alcohol from the heavy alcohol. The heavy alcohol can't get up the pipes and so goes back down into the still, and the light one goes on to become whisky.
