|Copper Column still|
Column stills, as their name suggests, are composed of straight columns. In most cases they eschew the bulbous pot design found in typical batch distillation systems.
In the world of bourbon production, there will likely only be a single column used to produce a constant stream of low wines, the name of the spirit that comes from the first distillation.
Those low wines are then fed into a doubler, essentially a small pot still that works continuously.
With vodka, where flavors need to be almost completely removed, a high degree of separation is desired. There may be four or five connected columns that all serve to purify the spirit to increasingly greater degrees.
And of course, these are simply the extremes for column still distillation. There are quite a few variations found in between for different distilleries and spirits.
Column still distillation seems simple enough. Turn on the heat, begin pumping feedstock and wait for the alcohol to emerge.
However, that seeming simplicity belies the necessity of skilled operators.
These stills must be monitored constantly because a small change in feedstock flow rate, incoming alcohol level, cooling, and so on can have huge impacts on the final spirit quality.
