The column alembic is a variation of the traditional alembic. The same alembic has been used for centuries for the distillation of firewater, oils and perfumes. It's hand-made and it has been made by craftsmen with a long experience that goes back to generations. Besides the fact it's perfectly working, this alembic is a beautiful object for decoration. The column alembic is composed of four parts: - The still pot in which we put the element we want to distill. - The column, in which the element to be distilled has to be put. - The lid : the upper part by where the steam passes. To be sure the steam doesn't escape, it will be better to insulate this lid with a mixture made with water and flour. - The condenser. It's in this condenser where the steam is condensed and the element distilled goes out.
