Kobashi Ylang Extra is the first part of the distillation. Sometime Extra is not taken and by extending distillation a little longer Ylang Ylang 1 is taken first. The charged still is run constantly; in the beginning Extra and one are taken, then two and then three. Complete is a mix of the total distillation.
