ORGLIST Distilling Thionyl Chloride

We got an old damn dark bottle of thionyl chloride and the boss wants me to distill it before we order a new one...  The procedure for purification of thionyl chloride as per the bible - Purification of Laboratory Chemicals - is damned involved and will take days....  Has anyone tried just a simple one pass distillation and used that?  Likely still contains impurities but good 'enough' for lab work?

Thanks,

Ken
