A Louisville, Ky., distillery has deployed a camera-equipped unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to mark the arrival of its massive new distilling equipment, a 46-foot-high structure of over 11,000 pounds of copper.

In an expansion of its facilities, Michter's Distillery used several GoPro cameras and a UAV to show the column being hoisted over 100 feet in the air before it was dropped into the distillery’s still tower.

The grandeur of the structure, which has 64,000 gallons of fermentation capacity and also includes a 9-foot-tall copper pot still with 250 gallons of capacity, can be seen from an aerial perspective of the UAV here.
