Gin FAQs

Q: What is Gin made from?

A: There are many ways in which gin can be made, but for the final product to be considered a ‘gin’ it must contain the primary ingredient of juniper. The cones of the juniper bush, commonly referred to as ‘juniper berries’, are required by law to be present in order for a spirit to be called gin. This is the predominant and most vital ingredient that makes a gin, just that. Think of it along the lines of a grape’s importance to the production of wine, and you’re part of the way there. In fact, we’ve gone quite in-depth in a blog post on this very topic.

Q: How is Gin made?

A: Gin is created by gathering a mixture of juniper and other botanicals, before steeping them in a neutral spirit that’s been combined with water. This is then left to ‘steep’ for a period of time (as long as 48 hours). This flavour infusion kick starts the stewing process, also known as maceration. Once this process is complete, the mixture is then distilled in a still before water is added to reduce the potency of the spirit and also subtly dilute the flavour. There are many ways a distiller may approach this process in order to produce a different tasting gin.

In short, the process is fairly simple, but open to interpretation depending on what you want the end result (or flavour) to be.

We consider ourselves quite the gin connoisseurs, so we’ve written a lovely blog post about gins — if you’d like to read more on the topic check it out.

Q: What are gin botanicals?

A: A botanical is a substance obtained from a plant, so a gin botanical is essentially anything that is added to the gin (other than Juniper berries which have to present for it be called gin) to give it a specific or preferred flavour. From more citrusy botanicals like lemons or bergamot to seed and roots like coriander or cardamom plus many more varieties.

Q: How is gin different to Vodka?

A: The main parts of Vodka are water and ethanol while Juniper berries are the main constituent part of Gin. While Vodka is distilled with either potatoes, rye or wheat, gin is made with malt or grain and then mixed with the flavour of Juniper berries.

Q: What is a gin and tonic (G&T)?

A: A gin and tonic (G&T for short) is a popular highball cocktail made with either a single or double measure of gin topped with tonic poured over ice with a garnish of your choice.

Q: Why does gin taste of juniper?

A: For the spirit to be considered a ‘gin’ it must contain the primary ingredient of juniper. This is the predominant and most vital ingredient so it’s prominent in the flavour. Have a look on our blog to find out more about the importance of juniper in gin.

Q: How are flavours added to gin?

A: Many gins start with quite a neutral flavour (from the grain), but there are various methods of the distillation process, where the beautiful and unique flavour of the spirit is created. The steeping of botanicals, and botanical vapour infusion are the two most popular methods of distilling gin. While the first is a more traditional method of putting the liquid into a vessel to be heated, the latter keeps the botanicals separate from the spirit to create a much more subtle and gentle flavour. Flavours can also be added to gin with a variety of garnishes, including cucumber, citrus fruits and even petals.
