In 1837, they are rare tools which can only be found twice in Dishonored: in Slackjaw's office in the Dunwall Whiskey Distillery, or in Sokolov's home on Kaldwin's Bridge. By placing an empty elixir vial in the receptacle and activating the still, Corvo Attano can collect free elixir. In both locations where stills can be found, there are several empty elixir vials readily available, though Corvo cannot reuse his own elixir vials.
- Granny Rags asks Corvo to poison Slackjaw's still as part of a side mission for her during High Overseer Campbell. Corvo must obtain a plague rat viscera from Dr. Galvani's lab to do so.
- A still can be found in the The Brigmore Witches DLC mission The Dead Eels. Though visually identical, it functions differently; rather than dispensing elixir, it produces an antidote for a specific kind of poison gas after the proper ingredients are obtained.
- In Dishonored 2, many stills utilising the same model can be found. However, none can be interacted with, so their purpose is unknown.
