    Organic Bitter Almond

    Hi Has anyone managed to source Organic Bitter Almond? I'm based in the UK but any supplier or source suggestions are welcome! Thanks
  4. We are switching our botanical infusion from a macerated gin to a vapor infused gin and are working through the baseline quantities of what we will need. Our recipe previously had about 11 pounds of botanicals macerated in a little over 100 gallons of 20 percent neutral spirits and distilled through a 500 liter pot still. We are now going to be distilling on a 1000 liter pot and will be distilling using a vapor basket rather than bathtubing it. Our basket can't even fit the 11 pounds unless you really jam it in and I don't want to risk blocking the condenser. I was looking through conversions and before I start throwing away money running some tests I wanted to see if anyone else had any basic conversions they recommend when converting botanical amounts from maceration to vapor basket. It sounds like you need less botanicals from vapor infusing, but I have heard that some essential oils don't get picked up as well in the basket. I would prefer to run the still full to reduce in utility costs but if it doesn't translate well then we might have to run smaller amounts. Any advice or opinions would help. Thanks guys.

  8. We are trying to create a traditional style of gin, in a compound style. We are very happy with our flavors and aromas but we have a whiskey-like color from the juniper/botanical extraction that we are having trouble removing. We have no louching occurring and our spirit is very clear after polishing. Carbon filtering is removing too much flavor, while still leaving some residual yellow color. My question is is there any way of removing the color from our spirit without completely removing all of the flavors? Is there a specific type of carbon that we should be using or another technique that works better? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Hello fellow distillers, We have been told that our vodka should be at 40% abv before filtering with activated carbon. If we want to use our vodka to produce a gin, can we filter it at a higher abv? We were considering doing a gin run with 65% abv alcool to be more efficient. Can we filter a vodka at 65% abv? Thanks all
  13. SOLD TO A VERY NICE HOME Hey everyone! We're almost ready to receive our new still so it's time to re-post this beauty This still was awesome for me. It enabled me to grow my business for 3 years before investing in a huge system. I was able to stay fully electric for years, significantly cutting down my initial investment costs. I was able to run everything on one still, stripping ferments, spirit runs, gin runs and rum all in one place. In year 2 I added an electric continuous stripping still and that kept me going all the way to the end of year 3. Now its time to go big, and pass this starter system on. (I'm not selling the continuous stripper yet, but we can talk if you're interested) We will run this still 6 days a week right up to when we turn it off. If the buyer wants to come down and see it in action, we'd be happy to provide on-site training for a few days.

  19. I've tried making gin on a whisky still and the resulting product has a whisky still taint/flavour/characteristic undertone. The same gin made on a still that's never made whisky, results in a lovely clean gin profile. My question to everyone is: Is it possible to clean sufficiently following a whisky run to remove the whisky flavour characteristics? The reason I'm asking is I'm trying to decide if I'll risk making whisky in my gin still. If I'm not 100% confident I can return the still to a clean state I won't risk it. I don't know anyone with a copper pot still with any experience in making both gin and whisky on the same still. All assistance greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mech.

    ethanol/botanical ratios when upscaling

    To date a lot of development work has been done using 700ml of vodka @ 37.5% abv in our pilot still. We are now shifting over to using GNS reduced with water so the charge will be 1 litre at 60% abv. Given the increase in total volume of charge and increase of alcohol I will be looking to increase the quantity of botanicals. Question is, should the botanical weight increase be in proportion to increase in total charge or increase in volume of alcohol only. My gut feeling is the latter as it is the alcohol we're ultimately re-condensing with all congeners. Anyone have experience of this transition upwards in volume and abv. Feedback greatly appreciated. Cheers All and Happy World Gin Day.
  22. Hello all, I was hoping to get some guidance on the resting period for white spirits. Is it common to allow a period of rest in steel or plastic after distillation but before filtering/proofing for GNS/Vodka? As for gin, I've read that a couple weeks of rest can benefit the final product prior to bottling. Again, are their two resting periods for gin (after distillation, after proofing)? Thanks for the help!

    Reverse Osmosis vs Filtered Water

    I was curious if anyone has used non-RO water to proof their gin and if that has had any set-backs. e.g. chill haze or louching. On small test batches I have been using just filtered water with no issues, but perhaps once I get up to 1000 liters per batch I might run into something different. Any advice on this would be great.
