Application for permission - still

You should complete this application if you want permission to manufacture, sell, dispose of, buy, import, own or possess a still with a capacity of more than five litres. A still is equipment used to separate substances from a liquid mix, by using the different evaporation rates of those substances.

Unless you already have an appropriate excise licence, you need permission for the still regardless of what the still will be used for.

There is no cost to apply for permission for a still. The capacity of the still refers to the volume of liquid that the still is capable of holding.

Permission for the still is not a licence to distil alcohol. It is illegal to distil alcohol without an excise manufacturer licence.
