2.5 Liter Distiller With Herb Sieve

This multi-purpose distilling appliance may be used for normal distillation processes or to zest up an already distilled eau-de-vie with different fruits, berries, herbs or spices. By placing the dry or fresh organics in the copper sieve tray and running a batch of eau-de-vie through this alembic you can make you very own liqueurs.

You may also obtain essential oils from this alembic through steam distillation as the organic material does not come in direct contact with the water in the pot but is distilled with steam. An interesting feature of this distilling appliance is the conical vapor chamber that due to its shape allows for some reflux of condensate and purification of the alcoholic vapors. You may also fill this vapor chamber to the top with dry organics as a small interior sieve plate situated at the top of the vapor chamber keeps any particles from entering and clogging the piping.
