The Figgins Reciprocator ~ an innovation in craft distillation!

Spirits Institute Puget Sound (SIPS) is excited to introduce the latest version of a highly innovative design ~ a spirits still for the craft distiller wishing to maximize reflux and amplify quality in just a single pass. Designed by SIPS’ own distillation engineer and master distiller, Rusty Figgins, the patented Figgins Reciprocator is a dual-kettle, pot-and-column hybrid system that relies on the flow of two opposing streams of spirit vapor to attenuate alcohol strength by increasing suspension time and hence greatly improving reflux.
The Figgins Reciprocator permits the production of fine spirits in a completely different way. As spirit vapor rises out of each copper orb, one path of vapor alternately advances and retreats as the opposing vapor retreats and advances, in a rapid reciprocating action. The slight compression that results from this action cools the spirit vapor, causing it to return to the kettles as liquid for another of many internal distillations. Meanwhile, a portion of the spirit vapor rises and either passes to the copper column and bubble plates, or directly to the condenser when the Figgins Reciprocator is in potstill mode, depending upon how the appropriate valving is configured.The Figgins Reciprocator has the added advantage of rapid heat-up time when compared to heating the same charge volume in a single-kettle still, with no additional energy demand. Finally, spirits made in the Figgins Reciprocator benefit from twice the amount of sulphur-binding copper than any other still of comparable total volume, owing to the dramatically improved surface area of the dual-kettle design.
