Prudence is the first copper still to launch in London for nearly 200 years. We designed her with Germany’s oldest distillery producers, Christian Carl – a small, family business who have been crafting stills since 1869. She is the only one like this in the world.
Prudence's bespoke design combining a pot, with a carter head and a column still makes her incredibly versatile, allowing us to distill both our Barley Vodka and London Dry Gin from the same still - albeit with a cleaning day in between.
The swan motif on the Sipsmith mark is a reference to the “swan’s neck” pipe where the spirit vapour turns above the still, and is a representation of the beautful and elegant Prudence who is at the heart of everything we do.
