Gin is a beloved spirit that has been enjoyed for centuries. But how is it made? Today, we'll take a closer look at the gin-making process and how Granny Garbutt's Gin is crafted using traditional methods and the finest ingredients.

The first step in making gin is selecting the botanicals that will give the spirit its unique flavour. Juniper berries are the most important ingredient, as they are what give gin its distinctive piney taste. But other botanicals, such as coriander, angelica root, and citrus peel, are also used to add complexity and depth to the flavour profile.

At Granny Garbutt's Gin, the botanicals are carefully selected and sourced. Each one is chosen for its unique flavour and aroma, and the distiller works tirelessly to create the perfect blend of botanicals for their gin.

Once the botanicals are selected, they are added to a base spirit, which is typically made from grains. At Granny Garbutt's Gin, the base spirit is made from wheat, which gives the gin a smooth and silky texture.

The botanicals and base spirit are then added to a still, which is used to distill the gin. At Granny Garbutt's Gin, a traditional copper pot still is used, which allows the distiller to carefully control the temperature and pressure during the distillation process. This results in a gin that is incredibly smooth and refined, with a clean finish that lingers on the palate.

Finally, the gin is bottled and labelled by hand, ensuring that each bottle is as unique and special as the gin inside. And with each sip of Granny Garbutt's Gin, you can taste the love and care that went into creating it.

In conclusion, gin is a spirit that is steeped in tradition and crafted with care. At Granny Garbutt's Gin, the distiller uses the finest botanicals and traditional methods to create a gin that is truly one of a kind. Whether you're a gin lover or new to the spirit, we encourage you to try a bottle of Granny Garbutt's Gin and experience the magic for yourself.
