Copper Alquitar Still

The alquitar still is a magnificent tool for distillation. Its structure allows that in one element of the alembic it can assemble two normal elements of the traditional stills, which are the normal alembic helmet with the condenser part in only one. Inside the helmet of the alquitarra it exists the vapor chamber necessary to condensation process. The unique format allows that the generated steam get in contact with cold water that exists in the concavity of the helmet causing the condensation. The distiller must pass water in the inside part of helmet to cool the process. The extra water will go out through a outside beak that exists in the side part of the helmet. The pot and its use is identical to the traditional alembic still, and the only difference found is in the helmet and its unique process operation. The distillation process is slower, thus enabling a better quality of distillate. It is widely used since ancient times in certain regions of Portugal and Spain. We use in its construction techniques that were used in past generations, using copper and brass soldering, to allow a construction free of lead. This model of alembic still serves to distil alcohol, essential oils and floral waters.
