An alembic (in chemistry, one version of a flask known as a retort) is the alchemy-age descendent of the modern distillation “still.” The earliest evidence of alembics appears in the works of ancient Persian alchemists such as Jabir al-Tusi (Geber), Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi, and Jābir ibn Hayyān.
