This hand-forged 100 liter still, crafted in the old Arabian style, consists of four parts: the boiler with about 100 liters capacity, the wide Arabian head with integrated collection channel and a sideways descending swan neck, as well as the generously sized condenser with integrated cooling coil and cool water intake and drain pipe. The boiler of this still is completely soldered – but we can supply the traditional riveted version on request.
Due to the wide Arabian head the distillate can evaporate unimpeded and transport all of the aroma contained in the mash straight into the condenser. If you cool the head by spraying cool water or placing a damp cloth on it, you can even increase the effect and allow the distillate to condense on the head. The result is a raw spirit of 25 – 35% vol. alcohol and you can very efficiently collect the raw spirit two or three times before you distil all of it in a second run to obtain a fine spirit of about 60%. This is traditionally the best you can do for the aroma.
We usually have one or two of these Arabia stills in this size immediately availale in our showroom – but with a delivery time of 6 to 8 weeks we can forge in custom work for you and add further extras. The pictures serve only as examples – in the case of orders, we can supply the stills on request traditionally fitted and riveted or more modern soldered and screwed.
We recommend traditional distillation equipment because of its historical appearance, especially for demonstration distillation and if you like to show off your still – and for a distillate with a strong aroma we recommend this still also for distilling fruit brandy and fine spirits. Whenever the aroma is important – and if you like to double distil in the traditional way, you are well served by an Arabia. This still is also a good choice if you want to distil essential oils and herbal distillates, and with some talent for improvisation you can re-work the wide head for steam distillation and distil flavoured spirits.
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.
