Abv% gin basket


Recommended Posts

Just curious. I see a lot of nice stills with eight plates and a dephlag prior to the gin basket. What abv% are you trying to achieve through the gin basket?  Do you guys hold it at a steady abv% or do you allow it to change (probably lower) through the distillation?  Also have you found any noticeable differences with different abv% going through the gin basket?  

Im super curious, my only thoughts are since alcohol is a solvent the higher abv% would be better at extracting oils. But I d love to know your guys expierences. I know Bombay has an awfully tall column before the gin basket I would imagine there is a lot of rectification before that basket.
