Distillation!

Virtuoso Distillery in South Bend, IN is serious about their separation science! These two columns are fractional distillation columns, just like the ones we use in the chemistry lab at Saint Mary’s College (except a tad bigger). When I arrived, Virtuoso was “rescuing” a bad batch of wine by isolating its ethanol to make vodka!

These two fractionating columns are made of my favorite element, Cu!
