Whisky words: condenser
The function of a condenser is to provide rapid cooling for the vapours coming from the stills.
There are two different types; shell & tube and worm tub, both of which play a significant role in the flavour development of the spirit.
As condensers are made of copper, they act to prolong the complex chemical reactions already taking place within the still and therefore also play their part in contributing to the flavour of the finished product.
Each distillery will have a minimum of two condensers (one for each still) but they usually have more.
