The Figgins Reciprocator™
A true workhorse at the heart of XO Alambic is an innovative distillation apparatus. The Figgins Reciprocator™ is a dual-kettle pot still with optional column distillation action, making it a hybrid of the two. It is constructed of copper and stainless steel, has a capacity of 2000 liters and is heated by recirculated mineral oil. The Figgins Reciprocator design is a real advance in craft distillation, and is causing quite a sensation. The fourteenth factory model is installed at XO Alambic's host distillery as many are in service around the country. Be sure to ask the master distiller for a description of how it works, which is one of the highlights of each and every tour given!
