Great Gin

Postby blond.chap » Tue Apr 09, 2013 4:19 pm

I'd like to propose this as a proven recipe, posted by bt1 as a modified version of OD's recipe.
I've only been told good things from this recipe:

- Crush the following botanicals well with a pestle and mortar and add to gin basket or bag.
- Place the basket/bag either above the RC or before the PC.
- Fill the boiler with 25L of TPW or chosen sugar wash, and run it as you would run a neutral.

Make cuts and either store at 90-95% or water down to drinking strength. Either way, note that the flavour (particularly citrus flavour) will smooth after about a month.

40-60g dried juniper berries depending on preference for lighter to heavier styles
4 almonds
3-5 strips of orange peel
3-5 strips of lemon peel
2 strips lime peel
3/4 teaspoon full of angelica root
3/4 teaspoon full of Orris root
1/2 star anise
1/2 teaspoon full of ground coriander
Cassia bark 1/2 a scroll or 1 teaspoon cinamon powder
3/4 teaspoon full of ground ginger
3 black pepper corns
1/4 teaspoon dill tips
3 whole cloves
6 grains of paradise
