Each rectification stage can operate independently and it is up to the operator's discretion how many rectification stages to select during distillation. The columns are characterized by perfect distillation and the high rectification column gives the best taste and purity to the distillate. The three-stage column can be adjusted for different fruits to find the right flavour of the spirit. These columns are recommended for buildings with a minimum building height of 2.9 m.
The distillates from the three-stage column are of the highest quality, where you can taste the marzipan flavour in, for example, mirabelle or apricot brandy after the first sip of the spirit. In the case of the plum brandy, you can even smell almond undertones. The most typical is the balanced taste of the spirit with a clear aroma of fruit, especially in the case of plum and pear brandy and apple and quince brandy. This can only be achieved when distilling on columns with a three-stage setting in operation. To increase the richness of the aroma, we recommend installing a catalyst, but this increases the overall height by 200 mm. The catalyst also reduces the presence of ethyl carbamate and hydrogen cyanide in the resulting distillate.
This type of distillation column is recommended for the distillation of all fruit mashes including exotic ones such as pineapple, mango, kiwi, banana and many others.
