Based on all the enquiries over the years, our company, once again looking forward to help our customers to find the most suitable system for their needs, has assembled a few kits, specially developed to the results they want to achieve.

There are many types of equipment that you can use as many different processes and methods, but all of them have something in common, the thermometer. Make sure you have one installed on the alembic and read all about the boiling points at specific temperatures.

As many distilled spirits that you can produce from many different models and styles, but here are six main categories, Whiskey, Brandy, Gin, Rum, Tequila, and Vodka.

Whiskey is created from fermented grain mash and usually requires 4 main stages: malting, mashing, fermentation and distillation. Various grains are used for different varieties, including barley, corn, rye, and wheat. Whiskey is typically aged in wooden casks.

Brandy is created by distilling wine, which can be made at home using any type of fruit. After the fruit has fermented, the liquid is distilled twice to produce a strong, clear spirit.

Gin is created by distilling a high grade neutral alcohol and getting as creative as possible with the ingredients, as long as you don’t forget Juniper. The neutral alcohol is mixed or steamed through the recipe of juniper berries and botanicals. This final distillation will result in a flavoured spirit with a noticeable degree of complexity.

Rum is created from a simple base of sugar, yeast and water. Rum has been a favourite spirit around the world, used in most tropical drinks and cocktails. There are a few methods to make rum, but mostly it is made from pure sugar cane juice or molasses.

Tequila is created by distilling blue agave plant, which is commonly mistaken for a cactus, but it’s really a relative of the lily. Traditionally the plant is harvested, then sugar is extracted and placed in fermentation tanks. Once the fermentation is done, it’s distilled at least twice and then placed to age in barrels.

Vodka is created from grains, potatoes, sugars, and fruits that are fermented to produce alcohol. It’s a neutral spirit that is usually not aged. This distilling process requires caution to discard the methanol, which can be harmful if consumed.

All customers should have in mind that most spirits are based on a process that requires safety precautions through the process. Please, make sure you know what you’re doing and contact us anytime to clear doubts and ask any question related to the process your intent to use and the results you aim to achieve.
