Alambic with a column called the Portuguese moonshine, equipped with a hollow column, in the bottom of which a sieve is embedded. This column is intended for placing plant raw materials into it: herbs, berries, fruits, flowers, leaves, etc. When liquid is distilled with alambic and a column, the steam passing through the column takes particles of this raw material with it, resulting in the formation of saturated ether oils hydrolat. It can serve as a basis for natural cosmetics, massage oils, in addition, it is used in aromatherapy and other industries.
If you use 1-1.5 kilograms of raw materials per ten liters of liquid, you can get 1-5 liters of hydrolat coated with a film of essential oil. This inaccuracy in the volume of the finished product is due to the different types and density of vegetable raw materials. If with the help of alambika with a column, distil the mash, then you can get a drink with an amazing aroma.
