Original hennin still constructed according to historical drawings from the Middle Ages. Unlike the medieval original, we supply this still in a set with a special aroma sieve for experimenting with all kinds of herbs, spices and other things, and for distilling esential oils.
Thanks to the large stackable sieve, this still is also suitable for the production of essential oils. In order to increase the yield you can fill several sieves with plant material and stack them one on top of the other to obtain more volume.
Inside the head is a welded on collection channel - during distillation the distillate condenses in the pointed head and runs through the channel and out of the still.
Please note that sufficient cooling is very important for this model. You should distil in a cold room or cool the head with cold water, snow or ice during distillation. Especially during alcohol distillation we recommend that you use a worm condenser, which was already invented in 13th century and which we supply as an accessory part.
The hennin still can be enlarged as desired using further seives and is also suitable for distilling essential oils.
Distillation is strictly regulated or even forbidden in some countries. Please inform yourself and pay attention to the regulations in your country. We can ship worldwide, but we cannot check if you are allowed to own a still. Shipping within the EU is completely unrestricted. For shipping to countries outside the EU we have to affix the invoice and shipping list to the outside of the package. Up to now we have never had problems with the importation of our stills into other countries.
