Why Copper?

Stills can be made from a wide variety of materials, including aluminum, brass, iron, glass, steel or clay. However, the majority of alcohol stills today are made out of either stainless steel or copper. Although more expensive, copper is preferable to steel, not only to preserve ancient traditions but because of its unique characteristics. Copper has been used for centuries. Old time moonshiners in the Appalachian hills used copper. Modern commercial distilleries use it too.

Why Alembic?

The alembic is the oldest and most recognizable design for stills. Its ancient origins can be traced back to the works of early alchemists who conducted the first documented, scientific experiments with distillation. The curvy onion-shape is iconic. It is believed that the alembic takes its name from the Arabic “al-anbiq,” meaning still, and from the Greek ambix, which means cup or pot. Some dictionaries define Alembic as “obsolete” but nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to home-craft distillation.
