Gin Maker's Kits - The Expert Blended Gin Kit

The perfect gift for any gin enthusiast! The Expert Gin Maker's Kit will make three 750ml of gin within 24 hours of crafting it. This kit contains the ingredients and instructions to transform a clear spirit such as vodka into a top-of-the-range, smooth gin under 24 hours. Four easy steps to create this and beautiful toppers to add on top of your G&T to add even more flavour.

Tube contains:

  • Italian glass bottle.
  • Label.
  • Filter papers.
  • Funnel.
  • Bespoke Toppers.
  • Three botanical mix sachets (including juniper berries).

How Do The Kits Work?

All gin and rum start life as a clear distilled spirit into which botanicals are infused with the dominant flavour being juniper. We suggest you use ordinary vodka which works really well and is readily available in all supermarkets.

The Gin Etc kits enable you to infuse the botanicals supplied into vodka to create a compound gin. Unlike most commercially available gin, a compound gin is not then distilled to refine its clarity. The method in these kits makes it possible to recreate and, more excitingly, manipulate the flavours of gin. You will understand more about the flavours different botanicals impart and create your own blend in under 24 hours.

Hint & Tips

  • You get out what you put in; if you start with a really intensely flavoured bottle of vodka, all the botanicals in the world will not help it.
  • Gin Etc. usually use a standard supermarket's own brand of vodka. It is relatively cheap and very neutral in flavour.
  • After a couple of weeks the gin tends to mellow, so don’t despair if it is a bit punchy at first.
  • A word of warning, please remove the botanicals after infusing to stop the process.
  • Rumour has it that refining the vodka through a water filter prior to the infusion refines the taste even further.
