  1. Hello, we've had a few commercial spirits out for several months and had made very small batch R&D gin for over year. We recently settled on a gin recipe and scaled up to full production. We use the same high quality organic cane natural spirit as our vodka at 40% and pass it through a gin basket on our small 200 liter column still. The vapor infused gin is collected, proofed to 48% ABV, filtered, stored, then proofed to 45% ABV for bottling. We've found that if the gin sits in a 55 gal drum for more than a few hours there is significant settling or stratification of flavor. For example, immediately after filtering, the gin will have the flavor profile we want, but after a few hours stored in a drum, it will taste different (more anise-forward, in this case, and the black pepper and juniper are significantly reduced). If we aggressively agitate / mix the stored gin in the drum, and take another sample, it tastes correct again. So, it seems as if some of the botanical flavors / oils are separating in storage. This obviously presents issues for consistency. Has anyone else experienced this issue? We had never heard of it before. Any solutions besides frequently mixing bulk containers? Thanks, Paul

  10. Gidday, I own a small company in the outback of Australia called Fosseys. We are based in a small country town called Mildura. We make Gin and Whisky Our local area is known for making wine amongst other things, and we have a strong long summer days with clear skies and great soiled, not much in the way of rain, but it all makes for interesting drinkable products. My own personal background comes from making wine Fosseys Gin is a bit unique using grape spirit and several Australian native botanicals, at has proven to be very popular Fosseys Whisky uses our local malt barley and we mature our whisky on ex port barrels. We also produce our own port to provide some consistency in seasoning our barrels This business has been somewhat of a lifestyle business up until now, however we are now committed to spending there next few years in taking Fosseys into the national (and maybe international) marketplace check out out a little further at fosseysgin.com.au, or follow us on the usual social media platforms Cheers Steve

    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
  12. 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.

  17. 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.

  23. 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
  24. 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. Perfect for a startup Now the deets: Artisan Still Design (ASD) Delivered Nov 2014 60 Gallon Series 1 Modular Still Computer Controlled with integrated electric heat and Dephlegmator controll (can be run full-manual) 304 Stainless steel boiler, electric Baine Marie Heat (3 x 4500W Elements) - easily run on steam if you want 16 plate fully versatile stainless column with copper caps French Brandy style copper helmet Custom designed in-line Gin Basket 2hp CIP system Fully Versatile from stripping to gin/rum/whiskey/brandy and vodka on 1 still!
