Alembic stills in use at Maggie's Farm Rum Distillery

An alembic (from Arabic الإنبيق (al-anbīḳ); from Greek ἄμβιξ (ambix), meaning 'cup, beaker') is an alchemical still consisting of two vessels connected by a tube, used for distilling chemicals. Still in use today for Whiskeys, Rums and fruit based spirits. It maintains the most flavor from the original materials. It is not used for neutrals like vodka as it cannot achieve the purity and high alcohol levels as a Reflux still.
