The production of Gin and sourcing botanicals:
Whilst the exact process of making Gin can differ, the fundamental method is the distilling of a base neutral spirit of 96.3% ABV with a mixture of botanicals, where juniper is predominant, to produce a concentrate that is then cut with water to dilute the liquid and bring it down to the required ABV.
It is the mixture of botanicals that is combined with the base neutral spirit that forms the core of our business. We have been involved in the supply of quality botanicals for many years having originally started in the City of London. As recently as 10 years ago, the number of distilleries producing Gin was very small (predominantly well known names) and the sourcing and storing of botanicals was very different to what it has developed into today. However, we have retained their core business with supply links with some of the largest distillers in the world.
