    "distillation was not achieved until alchemist Abu Musa Jabir ibn Hayyan (c.721–815 AD) designed and used a taqtir or al-ambiq. We now call this an alembic still."

    Nothing new under the sun Jono,Al-Kohl is an Arabic word and what devout muslims concern;Zottos whisky from Egypt, Murree single malt from Pakistan,Ankara malt whisky from Turkey and loads of wines made from almost everything are common by the people who aren`t allowed to use alcohol for religious reasons.Seems paradise is an empty place.
