Product Description

The Ultimate in Home Distillation

How do you make the already fantastic Turbo 500 Condenser better? Fabricate the column from Copper! Include a super duper new boiler with loads of features

Operating the Turbo 500 Condenser is now easier than ever thanks to the fact there is only one thermometer to keep an eye on. The new design thermometer (complete with stainless steel probe) on the T500 measures the output temperature only, as there is no need for an inlet (top) thermometer.

The Alembic Dome lid with Copper Condenser will fit onto the same Spiritworks boiler. This will give you the option of producing alcohol using the Turbo 500 Condenser column to produce a really clean spirit. Or you can use the Alembic when you are looking to retain flavours which are in your wash at a lower strength

All you need to get started making fantastic spirits & liqueurs. You will not find a better value for money kit anywhere.

In our opinion, the Turbo 500 Condenser is the finest piece of equipment we have seen for the small producer. Add that to the Spiritworks Bolier and you are heaven. The quality of the alcohol is exceptional. It still benefits from treatment through the Spiritworks Filter. This increases the taste quality and removes further impurities.

The main reason for the exceptional quality is the water flow is controlled at all points. It’s therefore essential to get a controlled water supply into the column. This is why a tap connector is used. The connector should be fitted to a tap with a screw thread or one with an aerator (after the aerator disc has been removed). This now comes with a 20mm BSP adapter for the flow controller which will allow you to connect it to a washing machine fitting or tap with an external (male) thread. If this can't be done we can supply a rubber end as a final option. This needs to be ordered separately. As we said earlier, the reason the quality is so good is that we fully control the outlet water temperature by careful restriction of the water flow.

This will make 10 x 75cl bottles of 40% ABV liquor. Once the kit has been purchased each additional batch will cost approx £2.40 a bottle. See our Cost of Producing Spirits & Liqueurs guide for more details
