By running a batch of eau-de-vie through this alembic you may add aroma and different flavourings. A few oak wood chips and you will obtain the colouring and aroma of an aged eau-de-vie, or zest it up with different fruits, berries, herbs or spices.
The process is very simple. Place the eau-de-vie in the copper pot and the desired material in the copper sieve basket. This is then inserted in the copper lid (vapour chamber). The basket is held in place with the aid of two clamps. Assemble the alembic and proceed with distillation.
You may also obtain essential oils in this alembic through steam distillation. Unlike other alembic models, the flowers petal or other organic material which is inserted in the basket does not come into direct contact with the water.
Unit should be placed on a stove burner or any other suitable heating source as supplied tea light serves merely for decorative purposes only.
