"CopperGarden®" still – column still 3 liters

   This copper column still with a 3 liter boiler distinguishes itself especially by its versatility. You can use this still with or without the column. Due to the stand which is fitted to the still  you can easily tilt the still sideways with a quick movement of the hand. That is very practical for emptying and cleaning – but also when you want to use the still as an alembic without the column, you can quickly swivel the column sideways. The head fits on the column of the CopperGarden® stills – and on the boilers. A distinctive feature which makes this still an extremely versatile model.  

   The still consists of the approx. 3 liter capacity, high-quality hard soldered boiler, and the top-mounted column with a further 2 liter volume. In addition, there is the elaborately, exactly fitted, hand-forged head, and the two-part screwable lyne arm and swan neck, as well as the generously sized worm condenser with cool water intake and drain. The stand, which is mounted on the boiler, is made of black lacquered wrought iron, and serves to hold the column tightly to the boiler during distillation.


Examples for use:

      1. If you fill the column with fermented pomace and then fill the boiler with water, you can obtain an excellent grappa.

      2. Or you can fill the boiler with water and the column with plants of your choice - the result is an aroma oil extracted gently by steam distillation.

      3. You can also ferment with turbo yeast and fill the mash into the boiler. If you then fill the column with stainless steel or glass beads you can increase the vapour pressure as you want and refine your distillate. By using this method you obtain a high percentage neutral alcohol. 

     4. If you fill the alcohol into the boiler again and fill the column with, for example, raspberries you will acquire an excellent raspberry-flavored spirit. Juniper plus some other spices gives a strong gin, from anise you can get ouzo, etc. There are no limits on your imagination, just give it a try – there are many aromas and mixtures to discover …

There are thousands of possibilities - whatever makes you happy! This still is our recommendation for all serious hobby users – and can be legally used in Switzerland for the production of essential oils and herbal distillates.
