Triple distillation Spirit Safe

Traditionally, distilleries used a Spirit Safe which allowed measurement of the distillate during distillation, without allowing the person measuring to come into contact with the spirit. Only the Customs and Excise Officer who performed these measurements had the key to the Excise Lock on the Spirit Safe.

Scotland amended their laws in 1983 so that now the distillery manager and the Customs and Excise Officer both have a key.
