This is more of a hypothetical question!
Disclaimer: I have no intention of doing home distillation in any form whatsoever.
In most countries home distillation of any alcohol products is illegal.
It is only legal in New Zealand. Some European countries turn a blind eye to it, but elsewhere it is illegal, with punishment ranging from fines to imprisonment or floggings.
Australians - You can possess a still of <5L capacity, but not produce spirits from it.
[In Bulgaria,] you can take your fermented fruits to a special facility and distill them without paying any tax if you are registered as home producer. Registration is free. The only limitation is that you can distill up to 1000l of fermented fruits and of course you need to pay for the time you are using the still (it can take about 200 litres at a time). - Home Distillation of Alcohol.
That said, how can one make a homemade still for making spirits at home safely?
