The set-up is about as basic as it can get but, that said, it's interesting to see how they "industrialized" it within the limits of their technology. The only process controls are sensory; the sound of the cooking pot, the intensity of the fire, the color of the distillate, its smell. People think it's important to keep crafts like hand weaving or broom making alive, why not spirits-making?
The other interesting part to me is the encasement. With the demonstration still, the pot is about half encased in concrete and brick. With the five in the new distillery, the pots are completely encased. I didn't see a drain, so I'm not sure how they cleaned them. I have to believe there is a drain of some sort. The demo unit has one.
