I work for a Water Well Co. in south Louisiana. I recently had the pleasure of seeing one of Vendome’s copper stills in the flesh. I have to say, when I saw the large copper pot, I was breathless. What a work of art! I am not at all familiar with brewing beer or liquor, but what I saw amazed me. I had never before seen such a piece of workmanship. It was absolutely beautiful. I can only imagine the hours that go into making something like that.
