However to produce any higher proof alcohol one does need a fractionating column attached to the top of the distillation vessel. It is more of a very broad view of distilling.

I have been craft distilling for three years and have collected a good sized library on the subject There is some very good information in this book but by and large there is no where near enough. It is more of a very broad view of distilling. As well as completely lacking the basic information that one needs to make recipes. Also the kind of yeast they say to use can not be purchased anymore.
This book is a good place to start but it is by no means the only book you would need to distill spirits of your own.

The authors provide some insights that i have never heard of before and i have a decent collection of distilling books on the shelf. Their explanation of turbo yeast and its use has totally changed my views on the subject.
Thoroughly researched and well explained, all three deserve a spot on your bookshelf. This book is a thoroughly revised translation of its original "Schnapsbrennen als Hobby", the most popular do-it-yourself book about producing spirits and fruit brandies in German.
The English edition is not a pure translation, it expands on regional features of North America and Great Britain. Now I understand the great popularity of the German version: Even beginners like me are able to start immediately after reading the numerous step-by-step instructions. Learned people telling how they are do it and the ins and outs of distilling and wine fermentation and care. This is the book! One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.

This often contains some faint green colouring and can be very bitter to taste. The feints are often added back into the next batch. There is no need to keep the feints or distil beyond the main liquor if doing a a small scale distillation. Then the second infusion is made over the course of some weeks.
Although the herbs are usually in dried form, some fresh herbs will lower the ABV by water extraction and even the dried herbs can lower the ABV very slightly. So very high ABV is necessary for the second infusion. Colour and bitterness come from the second infusion so get the fresh and dried herb mixture right. Some recipes add everything at once, others add ingredients to the infusion over time.
Eventually the liquor is filtered off the herb base and set aside to settle. The final product is just filtered, allowed to settle and decanted to bottles. That is why it is usually watered down before drinking although I prefer sipping it very gently at full strength. It comes from the added wormwood Artemesia absinthia and is one of the distinctive flavours of good absinthe.
As it is of a good Vermouth. And indeed there is far more of it in the herb Sage than in wormwood. And no one thinks sage tea is poisonous. My thoughts are dont make absinthe Distillation is a dangerous process and if not done right can have potentially fatal consequences. Aiming for such a high level of alcohol increases the risk of potential harm. Distillation is however a fun process and not one that should be avoided!
I would suggest starting with something else though, maybe Vodka?
And you still need to distill it yes, even if using pure ethanol. You can either add your wastage to your next batch or dispose of it appropriately. I would personally add water to the still before distillation. As long as you are using Pure ethanol not denatured you should not have to worry about it, or throw out any of the product.
