The production of Gin and sourcing botanicals:

Whilst the exact process of making Gin can differ, the fundamental method is the distilling of a base neutral spirit of 96% ABV with a mixture of botanicals, where juniper is predominant, to produce a concentrate that is then cut with water to dilute the liquid and bring it down to the required ABV.

Botanicals listed are packed for the home distiller.

Our new exciting botanical is Lemon Myrtle,  this is a beautiful alternative to lemon peel  or lemon grass when distilled, its floral character mingles with the other spices without dominating any flavours or aromas. We stock the 6mm cut for the distillery, ($22.50 per 50gm or wholesale at $130.00 per 1kg)

We source the freshest Lemon Myrtle and Anise Myrtle from Australian Native Products, the largest grower and exporter of lemon myrtle in the world, and have become a major supplier to the food & beverage, tea, cosmetics, nutraceutical, and health food industries worldwide. Using unique and innovative growing, harvesting, and production techniques, they are able to produce high-quality, fresh, fragrant, and flavoursome lemon and anise myrtle, (from picking to the finished dry product within 8 your)


There are hundreds of botanicals used to flavour gin but the following are the most commonly used…
