More details in the diagram / questions on built-in devices[edit]

To make the diagram more useful I would like to see it depicting

  • 1) the built-in hydrometers (Is there one per inlet?)
  • 2) any built-in flow rate measuring devices (I assume there must be some in order for customs to determine the amount of liquids processed) (Is there one per outlet?)
  • 3) the built-in device for determing if the "emerging spirit no longer turns water cloudy" as mentioned in the text (How does this device look like and how does it work?)

Even in the case that nobody can come up with a more detailed graphical scheme, I will be happy if one of you experts could please answers my questions. Patagonier 18:26, 14 November 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Patagonier (talkcontribs)

International point of view missing[edit]

"Spirit Safe" at Mackmyra Distillery

This article is very focused on Scotch Whiskey, which is understandable I guess... but an international point of view would be welcomed, as whisky is now produced all over the world. For example, I happen to know that spirit safes aren't locked in Sweden due to different tax regulations, but they are obviously still in use, as the stillman needs it to control the distillation process. It seems they are still called "spirit safe" for traditional reasons, even though they aren't locked. It would be interesting to know if this is true for other whisky producing countries also. Are there any experts from other countries around that can shed some light on this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gavleson (talkcontribs) 16:30, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
