"CopperGarden®" 2 Liter ESSENCE Column Still

Our favorite piece! The column still is the most versatile of all our stills. It comes with a non-reportable 2-liter boiler, an 800ml aroma column for your plant material, a perfectly fitting distillation hat with a swan neck tube that can be used on either the boiler or the column, a properly sized worm cooler, and a small distance tube for elevation compensation (although it is best to leave it out during distillation).

Please note that some of the pictures show the still with the Al-Ambik® distillation thermometer, which can be purchased separately as an accessory and will be pre-assembled if you order it along with the still.

This still is without a doubt the most versatile still you can get in the two-liter size. The proportions between the amount of water and the volume of the column are optimal, and the diameters of all the pipes have been expanded and adjusted to ensure a good flow of steam and cooling water. It embodies the essence of all our stills, perfect for distilling your essences.

The special feature: You can use this column still with or without the column. The column is attached to the boiler and can be easily removed with one hand. This is very convenient for emptying and cleaning, but also when using the still without the column, such as for an alembic-style distillation of rose petals. You can selectively distill essential oils and hydrolates directly from the boiler, or use the column for gentle steam distillation.

In Austria, you can even go further and distill alcohol at home. You can distill aromatic fruit brandies without the column, or use the column to produce fine spirits or high-proof neutral alcohol, for example, by filling it with Raschig rings. You have thousands of possibilities to suit your preferences.

This still is our recommendation for all serious hobbyists.

Important note: This still can be legally sold in Germany without registration, according to the new German alcohol tax law (like any other still with a boiler capacity of up to 2 liters). Please note that as a seller, we explicitly state that this still is only intended for the distillation of distilled water, hydrolates, essential oils, flavors, fragrances, perfumes, fuel, food, alchemical experiments, etc., or as a collector's item. If you distill alcohol and get caught, you may be fined and your distillation equipment may be confiscated.
