Embark on a delightful journey as we guide you through the fascinating process of creating your very own gin. With the right equipment and premium ingredients, you'll soon be sipping on your handcrafted spirit.

Equipment:

Ingredients:

Wash:

1.     Add 21L (5.5 US Gal) of water at approximately 30°C (86°F) to your clean fermenter.

2.     Add 6kg (13lb) sucrose or 6.6kg dextrose, stir to dissolve, and create a 25L (6.6 US Gal) sugar solution ready for fermentation.

3.     Shake Distiller’s Nutrient – Light Spirits well. For up to 15% ABV, measure out 150g (5.3 oz) or follow label instructions.

4.     Take Distiller’s Yeast – Gin and the measured-out Distiller’s Nutrient – Light Spirits. Add both to the fermentation vessel, stir well to dissolve, and fit the lid and airlock (half-filled with sterile/boiled water).

Ferment:

5.     Leave to ferment at 20-32°C (68-90°F) for optimum performance. Optionally, add Turbo Carbon to enhance alcohol quality by absorbing impurities.

6.     Once the airlock stops bubbling (approximately 7 days at temperatures above 20°C/68°F), indicating fermentation completion, taste the wash (it should be dry) or use a hydrometer to check for stabilized gravity.

7.     Let the wash stand for 1-2 days to settle remaining solids. Turbo Clear can expedite clarification.

Distill:

8.     Siphon the wash into your still, leaving sediment behind. For gin, perform two distillations. The first extracts alcohol, collecting hearts (65% to 40% ABV). The second adds botanicals for flavour.

9.     After the first distillation, filter the spirit through a carbon filter for a cleaner, cleaner smoother neutral spirit, using Filter Pro or Easy Filter System.

10.  For botanical infusion, use a pot distilling system like the Alembic Distilling System or Air Still Pro in pot still mode with the Botanical Basket attachment. Choose Still Spirits Artisan Gin Botanical blends or create your custom recipe.

Note: A reflux distilling system can be used but will not produce optimal results, remove saddles to avoid refining your gin.

Elevate your mixology with the essence of artisanal gin, carefully crafted to perfection. Cheers to your masterful creation!
