Alembic Pot Still
Designed for the artisan distiller. While the T500 is designed to strip all flavours from the wash, the alembic condenser and dome top combined with the boiler form a pot still, designed to retain and enhance flavours in the wash. Perfect for when you are distilling whiskey, rum and brandy washes to make the spirit from traditional ingredients, just like the professionals.
The alembic pot still is made up of the T500 boiler with a pot still alembic dome top and pot still alembic condenser.
The Pot Still Alembic Condenser is best used with the T500 Boiler and the Pot Still Alembic Dome Top. You can use this with the T500 Boiler without the Pot Still Alembic Dome Top, to do this it fits on to the lid of the T500 Boiler. This condenser is what differentiates this still from the T500. It is what retains the flavour rather than stripping it out by refluxing. This comes with a thermometer, tubing and tap adaptor set.
The Pot Still Alembic Dome Top is copper and fits on to your T500 Boiler. This can be used in place of the T500 Boiler’s stainless-steel lid. The large copper surface area of this dome top acts as a catalyst with the vapour in the still and helps enhance and concentrate the flavours and aromas as well as remove unwanted sulphur compounds. This produces a smoother, richer, sweeter tasting spirit.
NOTE: The T500 boiler, pot still alembic dome top and pot still alembic condenser is all sold separately.
