Regular price £540.00 Sale

This long column unit functions as a normal alembic still to obtain eau-de-vie and other alcoholic spirits or hydrolats (floral water). It may also be used to add different flavours to already distilled eau-de-vie by using the copper sieve which can be inserted at the bottom of the column. By running a batch of eau-de-vie through this alembic you may add aroma and different flavourings. Place a few oak wood chips in the column and you will obtain the colouring and aroma of an aged eau-de-vie, or zest it up with different fruits, berries, herbs or spices. The process is very simple. 
You may also obtain essential oils in this alembic through steam distillation as the organic material does not come in direct contact with the water but is distilled with steam. Copper sieve is held in place by 4 indents in the copper wall
