"CopperGarden®" 2 Liter Column Still "Essence +"

You'll quickly fall in love with this wonderfully versatile still from "CopperGarden®" Manufaktur. The "Essence" still is the pure essence distilled from all the knowledge accumulated over the past decades. It has been meticulously designed to meet the current legal requirements and optimized over the years to provide exceptional functionality. You'll receive a highly refined still, complete with a newly revised user manual, allowing both professionals and beginners to start distilling right away.

This still is the most versatile still you can find in the two-liter size. You have the option to distill directly from the boiler without the column, or use the column for steam distillation or spirit distillation. The proportions between the volume of water and the column are optimal. All tube diameters have been expanded and adjusted to ensure proper flow of steam and cooling water. It embodies the essence of all stills and is perfect for distilling your essences.

The still comes with a two-liter spherical boiler, a finely perforated aroma column, and a perfectly shaped distillation helmet with an attached swan neck vapor tube. The column is loosely attached to the boiler and can be easily removed and refilled or cleaned with a single grasp. This enhances the versatility of the Essence still significantly, as it can also be used as a simple alembic still, for example, for distilling rose petals. The distillation helmet fits both the column and the boiler.

With this still, you have thousands of possibilities at your disposal, which is why we highly recommend it for any hobbyist who takes their craft seriously and wants to explore the possibilities of distillation in depth.

Important Note: Since January 1, 2018, this still can be legally sold in Germany under the new alcohol tax law (just like any other still with a boiler capacity of up to 2 liters) without the need to register with the authorities. However, we explicitly state that this still is only intended for the distillation of distilled water, hydrosols, essential oils, aromas, fragrances, perfumes, fuels, foodstuffs, alchemical experiments, etc., or as a collectible. If you distill alcohol and are caught, you may be fined and your distillation equipment may be confiscated. In that case, we'd be happy to sell you a new still.

<h1>Distilling up to 2 liters of boiler capacity is not subject to reporting!</h1> <p>Thanks to the new German alcohol tax law (since January 1, 2018), we are allowed to sell this still to you freely and without any bureaucracy, and ship it to all countries within the EU as well as most other countries around the world.</p> <p><strong>Important to know:</strong> We must point out that in Germany and Switzerland, you are not allowed to distill alcohol. The still may be used without reporting for the distillation of water, hydrosols, aromas, natural remedies, cosmetics, essential oils, non-alcoholic beverages, etc. If you want to legally distill alcohol in Germany or Switzerland, you will need a commercial distilling permit.</p> <p>In Austria, you can also use this still for flavoring and distilling spirits from purchased (taxed) alcohol with various flavoring agents and legally distill gin, for example. However, it is also prohibited in Austria to distill alcohol from mash at home.</p> <p>Please familiarize yourself with the laws in your home country. If you distill spirits at home with this still, you would be considered an illegal distiller ("schwarzbrenner") and could face conviction for tax evasion equivalent to the amount of alcohol tax evaded. Additionally, the still could be confiscated. In that case, we are happy to sell you a new one.</p> <p>Thanks to the EU internal trade laws, we are able to ship this still without any registration as a regular package via GLS or DHL to all countries of the European Union. For shipments to countries outside the EU, we need to attach an invoice to the outside of the package for customs reasons, so that customs in your home country can correctly charge their taxes and fees. Please only place an order if you are allowed to own a still in your country.</p>
