1960s: A new method of heating the wash stills was introduced. Passing the wash through a series of heat exchangers (using hot water from the condensers) prior to charging the still would heat the wash to 75-80°C. Once the still had been charged, wash would then be drawn and passed through another heat exchanger where steam would heat the wash to boiling point. The vaporised wash would be returned to the still via a diffuser and in turn heat the residual wash in the still. This would continue until the distillation was complete.
