      Although this is an improvement over a basic pot still, it isn't a real
      reflux one. It will only put out say 75% purity as is, or up to 80-85% if
      you pack it a bit.

      If you want to do better, into the realms of 93-96% purity (and the flavour
      there is SO much cleaner) you should see about getting one of a decent
      length (say 600-1000mL tall), with packing inside (stainless steel
      scrubbers or the like - something with heaps of surface area), and set up
      so that you can return a lot of the condensed vapour back to the column as
      a liquid, and let it run down back over the packing.

      I haven't seen any of these available yet commercially, but the new Euro
      ones aren't too far off. They just have the cooling tubes through the
      column at the wrong place - they should only be at the top, not half way
      up, or near the bottom. Maybe with a little consumer pressure, Spirits
      Unlimited might improve their game ?
