Gin

Got a recipe for a nice black cherry burgundy? Got an opinion on a yeast that you just have to share? This is the place for you.

Gin

Post by Colmd » Mon Feb 10, 2014 12:53 am

I've been wondering about making Gin, and the process involved.

Firstly I assume if I buy vodka retail in Ireland I can make gin legally, as long as I obvioulsy don't supply it to others....

Is it just a matter of steeping aromatics in some alcohol for some time?

Made Sloe gin before, turned out fine.

I believe that true give is re distilled after it have been infused with you aromatic of choice.

Nothing wrong with it and could make an interesting tipple, I presume just give it some time and check regularly ;)

Just seen this. Yes, the method you suggest will work - it's known as cold-compounded gin. Cork CDC is made by this method, I believe.
