Was at an art exhibition on the weekend and someone had this tiny pot still on display. Looks to hold about a liter or two max.

Just in case you want to do some distilling on your back packing hike.

That a cute little rig! Nice!
I have thought for years about building a little table top rig that would distill one bottle of wine at the dinner table. Maybe it is time to dig out my sketches...
Over the years I have picked up several fondue alcohol burners to use as a heat source, I have never run across a Tangia alcohol back packing stove which was my original idea. Sorry, rambling again...

I'd get just a hair over 100 ml of product off a 1 liter rig with my normal washes lol. I'd probably sit there taking shots of cheap whisky waiting for this little puppy to turn out a couple more shots for me to slam. Novelty still, very cute.
I've been running glass stills for over 20 years now and have no shame in saying so.

This indeed is a cute one!
A company in Germany sells small stills, ranging from 0.5 liter to 3 liter. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland home distilling is free for washes of resp. 0.5, 2 and 3 liters. So someone joked that you go to a party and everbody brings his own small still to run on the table. Like fondu or gourmet!
They have all kinds of models, even the Iberian ones.
But costly: starting about EUR 300.

I've always loved doing fondue, I have a selection of smaller boilers to pic from and several condensers.......you just gave me an idea
