Now that is very unusual....Not something you see everyday x
You're right there Kim,I took some Australian friends who were visiting us this summer to the Royal Lochnagar Distillery on our way to see Balmoral Castle. The photo shows one of the two small copper pot stills for making whisky. And yes of course we had to buy some... it would be rude not to ;DEnjoy your day and thanks for stopping by
What a fantastic yet unusual object. x
Yeah I thought it might cause a stir on Silent Sunday Photo. The photo shows one of the two small copper pot stills for making whisky. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by ;D
Not that's an interesting object, have to admit I have no idea what it is :)
Shall I solve the mystery for you Sara?It's a copper still used for making whisky... and yes we did bring some home with us! Thanks for stopping by at my place. Have a great Sunday whatever you have on your plan... enjoy!
What an amazing thingy, what on earth is it? Love the colour and shine on it.Nipping over from #MySundayPhoto.
Hehe... your comment made me chuckle ;DIt is one of two small gleaming copper pot stills for making whisky. I love to find something just a little different for Sunday Photo and I'm pleased this shot has caused the reaction it has.Thanks for stopping by... have a great Sunday ;D
It looks like something from either Willy Wonker or a brewery...no idea but I want oneThank you for linking up
Chocolate or whisky? That is the question.... ;DWell, in this case it was a whisky distillery and this photo is of one of two small copper stills at the Royal Lochnagar Distillery which just happens to be neighbours to Balmoral Castle. Just saying.... Thanks again for hosting this great linky Darren,Enjoy your Sunday
Ooooh have you been to a distillery? x #mysundayphoto
Bingo Kirsty! You win by guessing correctly. During the summer I had visitors from Australia and one of our day trips was to the Royal Lochnagar Distillery. It is situated beside her Majesty the Queen’s Scottish Home, Balmoral Castle at Crathie, half way between the villages of Ballater and Braemar. I hope to write a blog about it soon.Well done and thanks for visiting my place.Have a great Sunday ;D
Love the way the light is refracted off and onto the back of the wall! I won't hazard a guess as to what it is as I am stumped #mysundayphoto
Be stumped no more... it's a whisky still ;DWe visited the Royal Lochnagar Distillery over the summer when we had Australian friends staying. This still is one of two small stills on display and I loved the copper,and light too.I thought it might cause a stir on Silent Sundays linky... and I wasn't wrong.Thanks for visiting and leaving a great comment.Enjoy your day
I had no idea what the purpose of this was until I read your comment! Fab shot. :) xx
I like to link up with something a little different or thought provoking for Silent Sunday. I thought this would be a good entry.Thanks for stopping by to comment. Have a great Sunday... enjoy!
Oh My.... after ready the comments I now know what this is.... but I must say I had no idea.Thanks for the Mind Bender today!
Hehe... my pleasure ;DI like to throw something of a mystery into the Silent Sunday linky.It certainly got people thinking for this one. Thanks for visiting once again... it's always great to see you in my in-boxEnjoy your Sunday
After reading all the comments above I now know what it is! I wouldn't have had a clue otherwise (although I sort of guessed it might have been related to a distillery!).
I posted last night Victoria, but didn't get a chance to reply to anyone until this morning, so that left a little time for the puzzle ;DI'm glad your kind of guessed it. I've had fun with this linky.I hope your Sunday is going well... enjoy!
What a glorious shine it has. I neither like the smell nor taste of whisky but always admire the colour. There's a shop in Elgin that has a whisky shop in it, and the price of some of them - woof!! A years salary on a couple of them! My father-in-law enjoyed a dram of malt, so at Christmas we always endeavored to find him unusual ones that he hadn't had before and it was thought even better if the bottle was bonny too :DEnjoy the rest of your day Denise ((hugs)) :o) xox
I sure could do with whomever polishes these stills to pop over to my place for a wee bit of dusting. The place would be gleaming in no time! ;DI don't indulge in whisky drinking usually, although it has been known... I know for a fact that I don't like the smokey ones. They taste like you're drinking from an ash tray! As to the price... well yes they are expensive, but when you think they have to mature for 12 years before being sold, I suppose that's justified. My hubby likes his single malt, so there's never a problem when there's a present needed and we can't think what to buy. I like the ornate bottles too. The photo of the wee still above is wee... the big brother's (real working stills) are in an area that you can't use your camera... although I was soooooooo tempted! They are huge and look so impressive. Have an enjoyable day too Mo ((hugs to you)) xoxo
it is indeed quite interesting.. so, how do you make whisky in it?p.s.I thought it's a musical instrument of some sort, until I read the comments. :>
I'm glad it caught your interest Teresa ;DIf you'd like to see more details then here's a link that gives lots of information on the distillery and it's process...http://www.discovering-distilleries.com/royallochnagarThanks for stopping by to visit... your comment made me chuckleHave a great Sunday
Ooooh, I am pretty sure they would still use these sort of things in Romania too to make strong drinks :-)
Possibly... I think the technique hasn't changed for many years.Thanks for visiting my place. I hope you've had a great weekend.Let's hope the coming week is good too ;D
Interesting photo. Love the colours of it - surely unusual material for a still?
I thought it was a lovely colour too Emma,Gorgeous copper ;DThanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope you have a brilliant week.
Now see being an old whiskey drinker from way back....that was my first thought a whiskey kettle. :) :) And it is a gorgeous patina on the copper.
Hic!... oh you mean you Nan...(hic)... I thought you were referring to me for a minute ;DHeheI thought you'd know what it was cos you're sooooo switch on! I hope you are having a great week and I'll nip over to visit you soon.
I love that, so unusual! (I read previous comments, so I know what it is) x
I'm glad you liked it Jo,I thought it was an unusual photo for my entry to Silent Sunday. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.I hope your week has started well and continues to improve ;D
Part of a whiskey still?! I would have never guessed. Very pretty, actually. :)
The still that is in my photo is a small display model. In fact there are two but I thought the single still looked the best for this entry.I wasn't allowed to take a photo of the real BIG working stills. They are brilliant and so shiny. A gorgeous colour too ;DGreat to have you visit Rita, take care and I'll be popping over to your place soon.Have a great week xoxo

Hehe... I'm so happy to hear your reaction Sherry,But I'm afraid it's got nothing to do with a boat... but I know what you mean ;DIt's a copper still for making Whisky! Thanks for visiting my place and I hope you have a great week
