The product from a compound still is often much purer than commercially produced vodka, and most people are very satisfied with it as it comes from the still. If you want the ultimate in purity, process the product with activated carbon to remove the last hint of any congeners. We especially recommend carbon treatment if you are planning on making perfumes, essences, or delicately flavored liqueurs. It shouldn't be necessary if you want to make strongly flavored beverages or mixed drinks. The final choice, of course, is up to you, and you should have some fun experimenting with these options. Let your own taste and preference be your guide.
