Premium Copper Flip Top Column Alembic Stills
One of our most popular choices, the Copper flip top alembic is ideal for steam distillation with either botanicals for making essential oils and hydrolats or fruit mashes for distillation of alcohol. The water is placed separately into the pot, while the column allows the separation of the botanicals from the water and the copper sieve incorporated into the bottom of the column allows steam to come through and pass through the materials. This still also makes it easier to empty and clean out, ready for your next batch in just a few minutes, you simply have to tip the column to the side and empty its contents and save time by using the water already inside the pot to continue distilling. With this equipment you are getting a two in one deal. This alembic can also be used as a traditional model, all you have to do is tip the column over and place the hood directly unto the pot. This should help out with the second distillation if so desired, to rectify the results and achieve a higher grade distillate with the same alembic.
