"CopperGarden" still "Alquitara" 5 L for essential oils

   We can recommend, without hesitation, this still which was specially forged for the distillation of essential oils – we also use it regularly in our exhibition in the Rhoen, in the middle of Germany, and can look back on several years of trouble-free, continuous operation.

   The still consists of the divided boiler with almost 5 litres capacity, the vapor chamber with aroma sieve and the top-mounted condenser. It is hand-forged out of copper in the CopperGarden forge and is ideally suited for the production of essential oils and distillates. The alquitara still is made completely out of plain copper sheeting and is certainly the best choice for distillation of essential oils. The distance the vapour travels is particularly short in this still – the vapor can transport the valuable oils as well as the aromatic distillate unimpeded into the condenser.    

   Thanks to the second removable copper sieve in the upper part of the still (in the head), the entire upper section of the still can be filled with plant material. That guarantees the maximum yield. A third soldered sieve prevents the herbs from being transported into the condenser. All in all, a masterpiece and far and wide the best choice if you want to distil essential oils.


Important information:

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.
