Moonshine stills, also known as alcohol stills, are distillers that are capable of distilling alcohol. The actual term Moonshine Still is often misused. While most people consider moonshine to be specifically a high-proof alcohol distilled from corn, it can actually refer to any illicitly distilled alcohol. Although referred to by many as a moonshine still, any distiller is capable of working as an alcohol still. A simple still, or pot still, will offer a lower degree of refinement, and is what was traditionally used for the distillation of moonshine. Today, a pot still is considered one of the two primary types of alcohol stills, and is used mostly for the production of flavored spirits such as whisky, brandy, schnapps, etc. The second type of alcohol still is a reflux still, or fractionating still. This still separates the vapor produced into fractions based on the boiling point of each component. So-called moonshine has a lower boiling point than most of the other components, allowing a person to pull the highly purified alcohol from the still and leave behind impurities. This high-proof alcohol is often diluted and further refined by filtering through activated carbon in the production of vodka. "Moonshine" generally does not go through this final process, and thus retains a character from the small amount of impurities remaining in the alcohol.
