How we make our gin

We use a Carter Head to make our gin. The Carter Head was invented in the 19th century as a way to rectify crude spirit but is now used to make a few select gins, the two most well known are Hendrick’s and Bombay Sapphire.

The Carter Head sits between the still and its condenser and contains a basket that holds the botanicals.

We put our double distilled and charcoal filtered vodka into our small still (Little Nell) and run the still very slowly. The vapour travels through the botanicals basket and comes out as around 75% abv gin. We then dilute it with rain water to produce our 40% abv final product.
