All depend on the reflux ratio of your still. Now you can produce a product up to 95 % ethanol, but you can’t drink it, it is too strong (can be poisonous), and it needs diluting. Get an alcohol meter (or one for wine), measure the % alcohol, and dilute it down to around 40 % (whiskey) or 22 % (liqueurs).
