Ive been pouring over posts and the internet
trying to get some insight on legal
hurdles of having a still on board a circumnavigating boat
? One YouTube channel flaunts their boat-made hooch from a small electric
still made by Still Spirits based out of New Zealand
. These units cost around $150-$200 USD...and they work
wonderfully! They are advertised as meant for hooch, essential oils, water
, etc. I have one at home and plan to bring it with me when we leave for our circ in a couple months. They are very simple, and make great product from plain table sugar, water
, and yeast...dirt cheap
I know most countries restrict the actual act of distilling alcohol, but what about even owing a still? The distillation can occur while underway outside country borders
. They are very inconspicuous looking, kinda like a coffee pot. Think my beloved still going to be confiscated by some immigration/customs officer?
Thanks for any and all help!
