Using a copper alembic still you will be instructed by our head distiller on the process of gin distillation.
You can let your imagination run wild and add the flavour combinations that really appeal to you. Our head distiller will advise on various flavour combinations. We will gently guide you on when to make the all important cuts that will influence the spirits smoothness, balance and flavour profile.
