Alambic

Onion-shaped still or distillation attachment for the production of distillates. The name (also Alambik or Alambique) results from the Arabic article "al" and the Greek word "ambikos" for a vessel or bowl. The Alambic collects them during the distillation rising alcohol vapors and forwards them into the cooling coils, where the distillate condenses and condenses in liquid form.
