The Still Spirits Air Still Infusion Basket is a stainless-steel basket suitable to infuse your neutral distilled spirit with botanicals such as juniper, lemon, orange peel, cinnamon sticks, chilli or other flavouring ingredients. The basket is easily attached to the underside of the Air Still lid by aligning the indentation on the basket with the nodes on the lid.
The Air Still has a hole under the lid where vapour enters and condenses in the cooling coil before coming out as liquid alcohol. It has come to our attention that a few customers are finding pieces of botanicals stuck within the cooling coil. This may cause unwanted pressure build-up inside of the unit.
To prevent this, when using the Still Spirits Air Still Infusion Basket we suggest:
Use a muslin cloth, hop bag or tea bag when using small botanical materials such as dried herbs and spices.
Use plant material that are larger than the hole under the lid i.e. larger than 1cm in diameter.
We do not recommend turning the top of the Air Still upside down when inserting the basket. Make sure no material falls into the hole.
