Originally a 'distillery', where cordials and herbal remedies were distilled, the Still Room had become more usually associated with the preparation of sugar preserves by the early part of the 19th century. Jams, jellies, chutneys and pickles would be made here. As sugar was still relatively expensive, the Still Room Maid held a position that was somewhat superior to the other kitchen maids.
