You’ve probably heard of home brewing. Home distilling is a similar, scaled-down process—with small-batch spirits like whiskey and brandy as the satisfying end result. And the copper still from Alchemade does the job while acting as a striking addition to your space. (Make sure you get familiar with federal and state laws before you start distilling, though!) If DIY spirits aren’t your thing, the still can be used to make essential oils or distilled water instead. Distilling is a tradition that hasn’t really changed in, well, centuries. This still is fashioned after the alembic still, which dates back to ancient Egypt. It’s handcrafted by artisans in India, who are paid a fair wage for their work. They carefully hammer and solder the pieces to create an eye-catching still that is as functional as it is beautiful.
