Resting Gin what Proof


Recommended Posts

Howdy guys,

So I just finished my first big batch of gin.  Now because of tank space issues i'm resting it at distillation strength, which is just over 75% abv.  Is this okay?  What strength alcohol do you guys rest your gin at?  At bottle proof, slightly above bottle proof, Distillation proof?  

And has anyone found a difference in Resting the gin at different proofs?


Thank you kindly

I rest after proofing to bottle strength, 45% abv. I thought that the water needed time to settle with the distillate. 

Blending right before bottling always resulted in a kind of strong "alcohol bite"  in the taste and aroma.... but maybe it has to do with the botanical bill.....
