This is a condenser pipe from a poitín still. The condenser cools down the vapour and turns it into liquid. Poitín making was illegal for centuries until 1997. Since poitín has been legalised it has been granted Geographical Indicative Status which means that from 2008, real poitín can only come from Ireland – making it similar to Champagne.
