Historical whiskey pot still at the Midleton distillery complex of Jameson in Cork.

A pot still is a type of still used in distilling spirits such as whisky, etc. Heat is applied directly to the pot containing the wash (for whisky). This is called a batch distillation (as opposed to a continuous distillation).
At sea level, alcohol boils at 78 °C (172 °F), while water boils at 100 °C (212 °F). During distillation, the vapour contains more alcohol than the liquid. When the vapours are condensed, the resulting liquid contains a higher concentration of alcohol. In the pot still, the alcohol and water vapour combine with esters and flow from the still through the condensing coil. There they condense into the first distillation liquid, the so-called "low wines". The low wines have a strength of about 25-35% alcohol by volume, and flow into a second still. It is then distilled a second time to produce the colourless spirit, collected at about 70% alcohol by volume. Colour is added through maturation in an oak aging barrel, and develops over time.

It's a little shocking this "Leviathan" as an object of decoration, but then we got used and is funny.
Great photo, Francis.

Hi Francis,
The copper color in this pot really makes the scene. Very bright, vivid and well composed photo. Great lighting and taken from a perfect POV to show the distillery as well as the marking. REALLY nice photo. TFS Julie

I like it very much, such a funny "sculpture". Nice photo with good light and perfect sharp details

Hello Francis, we visited Jameson in Dublin and did not have the benefit of decent PoVs.
You obviously had the space to decide on yours.
Lovely contrast between the textures, and the shapes of the 'pot' with the building.
Very colourful.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis,
Could be some sci fi abstract object and overpowering within the space. I like the combination of items in the image and color variations. Well seen and interesting capture.

Excellent shot with fine colors and detail.The Irish seem to feel about whisky much the same as Germans do about beer.All the best Otto.
