Everything you need to make your complete range of authentic spirits

Turbo 500 Copper Condenser: This is the worlds most advanced fractioning column for home distillation. It is designed to produce commercial grade high purity alcohol (93%+) and provide maximum alcohol yield (95%+). As it comes ready to use, it is extremely simple to operate and is a stunning looking handcrafted solid copper condenser. Use this to make authentic vodka & gin plus a range of liqueurs.

New & Improved Copper Alembic Condenser: This condenser retains the flavour rather than stripping it out by refluxing. This comes with a thermometer, tubing and tap adaptor set. The new & improved version now incorporates a spiral structure modification inside the condenser called fins. The outer water jacket tube of the condenser has been modified internally to increase surface area with the inner distillate arm allowing for better cooling performance. Fins allow the cold water to pass through with some turbulence increasing surface area within the inner tube. The cooling sleeve has been extended back towards the temperature probe which gives the extra cooling length. This new condenser arm has improved the overall efficiency (heat transfer) of the Alembic condenser, allowing for a colder spirit collection temperature. This is perfect for when you are distilling whiskey, rum, and brandy washes to make the spirit from traditional ingredients, just like the professionals. Use this with the Grainfather to make authentic whiskey & bourbon, and with the Mangrove Jack's boiler to make authentic rum.

Our CRAFT STARTER PACK includes everything you need to produce one batch of pure alcohol using the Turbo 500 Condenser except for sugar or dextrose. You will need 6kgs of sugar or dextrose. We also sell boxes of 12kgs dextrose, bags of 25kgs dextrose, and boxes of 12kgs Turbo SugarYou also have the Alembic Pot Condenser to make full flavoured craft spirits.

        Check out the below instructions on how to use the Still Spirits Turbo 500. Please note, the condensers now come pre-packed with saddles, so you can skip this step. Also, they use a cap for the airlock which you shouldn't do, you should just fill it with water so air can escape and not get inside. You may also want to check our our Still Spirits Turbo 500 FAQs.
