This product is handcrafted and as such, measurements and capacities may vary slightly from the ones listed here. The copper thickness refers to the original copper sheet used in the manufacturing of the alembic.
Simply fill up the external chamber up to ¾ of its capacity with water, the water level should be checked after each distillation so the alembic doesn’t run dry.
Care for your still: A first cleaning distillation is recommended to clean out any impurities left over from the manufacturing process. These substances, which are inherent to copper, can also be deposited after the still has not been used for a long period of time.
A detailed information leaflet will be included with your purchase that contains safety precautions as well as cleaning and maintenance instructions.
