    Pink vodka/Gin

    Hibiscus is heat and light sensitive so it will eventually turn yellow/ brown. We use natural carmine liquid as a dye to great success and stability in our pink gin. The pH of your product will affect if it appears more pink or purple. It is the most heat and light stable natural red dye I have been able to find. Out side of this you would have to turn to artificial dyes that will give very stable color. For example, for years Campari used carmine to make their famous red liquor, but have since switched to red #5, I think for supply and cost issues.
  2. we start our boiler pot up with 80 proof (40% ABV). I macerate at a higher proof prior to the run and also employ a Gin basket.

  6. We don't crush ours at all. Just maceration and Gin basket loading. I do crush coriander and a few other ingredients depending on the recipe.
