Turkish delight vodka

Postby PJD » Sun Jul 08, 2018 8:50 pm

Hi all. I’m new to home brew. Have got myself a reflux still. Have made my first batch of vodka but am very keen to make it Turkish delight flavoured. Does anyone have a good recipe for it. Thanks :text-thankyoublue:

Soak some turkish delight in the spirit, or play round with ratios of choc and rose water essences..

I’m seriously thinking of that one you spotted on here. Money the factor but those stills don’t come up very often. Got the bug. Now just gotta feed it. :text-lol:

I use to buy Turkish delight essence from my local home brew shop. It was nice, bit to sweet for my taste though.

That’s what I’ve been doing. Would rather make my own if possible that way you can actually say you made it all.

You can make all sort of lolly flavoured vodka by soaking it in neutral.
Musk flavoured vodka would be my favourite.

Just buy a reasonable pack of Turkish delight and soak it in 40% neutral in a jar until it dissolves. Probably not chocolate coated though as I'm not sure the chocolate fats dissolve too well in 40%.
If you want chocky flavoured I think some people add chocolate topping but double check on that.

Welcome to AD PJD

Rather than go down the whole soaking/filtering process using actual Turkish Delight, you could possibly just add some rose water to your neutral then adjust to correct drinking strength as normal.

Cheers,
Prof. Green.
