Although the central goal of distillation is to extract alcohol, an equally important task is to navigate homologues. The distiller needs to retain what they want and remove what they don't want (and in the correct amount) to achieve the flavor profile they want. They cannot simply pick their favorites. The homologues are present in different parts of the distillation batch, the "run" part. The brewer selects congeners by keeping some parts of the run and discarding (or recycling) other parts. So distillation is not true flavor creation, but flavor separation.
The design is quite clever, much more complicated than the pot still. As you might have guessed, the columnar stills are composed like pillars. Inside the column is a series of perforated plates-usually made of copper-spaced like steps in a ladder. Each of these plates is essentially a small distiller that can filter out congeners as the alcohol vapor passes through. Essentially, a row of stills is like several stacked tank stills.
Flexible production of various spirits
The column distiller can not only be used to make large-volume spirits. There are many complex and strong spirits, such as bourbon and Armagnac. Like the tank distiller, the column distiller is fully customizable, some have multiple columns, some have only one. For stronger spirits that fall off at the lower ABV, there may only be 4-6 plates in a row. For the purest and highest ABV spirit, it will be 50-60.
