The present invention refers to a process for reducing alcohol in a fermented beverage comprising (i) pre-heating a fermented beverage feedstock to a temperature between 40°C und 60°C, (ii) introducing said feedstock into the upper section of a distillation column operating at a pressure between 5kPa and SOkPa and a temperature between 40°C und 80°C, (iii) subjecting the feedstock, as it flows down the column, to alcohol vapour rising up the column, thereby stripping aromatics from the feedstock to yield an aromatic vapour. The aromatics are condensed. The fermented beverage is introduced into the upper section of a second distillation column operating at a pressure between 5kPa and 50 kPa and a temperature between 45 °C and 85°C and is subjected to steam/low-concentration alcohol vapour. The resulting alcohol vapour is transferred to a rectifier and is concentrated there. The fermented beverage is discharged from the second distillation column and mixed with the condensed aromatics.

Separator apparatus and method for treatment of a contaminated liquid by injecting air/gas to lower the specific gravity of the contaminated liquid by at least 20% and rotating the contaminated liquid to separate contaminants by centrifugal forces. The separator includes a swirl chamber defining a longitudinal axis; at least one injector for, in use, introducing: (i) liquid entrained with air/gas; (ii) air/gas-entrained liquid; or (iii) air/gas, into the swirl chamber; a first outlet located at or near the operative bottom of the swirl chamber for, in use, removing sludge from the swirl chamber; a second outlet located operatively above the first outlet for, in use, removing liquid from the swirl chamber; circulating means to, in use, circulate liquid in the swirl chamber; and an elongate body that extends from or near the operative top of the swirl chamber, along the longitudinal axis of the swirl chamber, beyond the level of the at least one injector.
