This vital ingredient for the distillation of gin is under high demand and at Beacon Commodities it is time to finalise all our purchases following a full year of planning.
The greater the popularity of gin, the higher demand for Juniper, both for distillation and then use in oil extraction and food products. This increased demand was not hard to predict. When you are dealing with a wild product that is harvested once a year, it has reaffirmed the need for us to plan at least 12 months ahead. We have previously mentioned our travels back in June that formed part of this plan.
Both Tommy and Michael managed to squeeze onto a Wizz Air flight for the sunny hills and beautiful autumn colours in Macedonia. The Balkans have been experiencing some excellent weather and as a result collection across all the regions continues with the quality improving day-by-day. The good weather is also bringing down the moisture content of the berries.
