If your gin still tastes like vodka after the initial infusion is finished we would recommend a couple of things.
- Try it in a gin and tonic! In our experience you shouldn’t be able to tell the difference between your home made gin and a commercial gin.
- Try a longer infusion of juniper berries (as these give the gin the majority of its taste), another 48 hours would do the trick.
- If 1 and 2 don’t work then we would recommend sending us a message and we will send out another sachet of freshly dried juniper berries to add to your infusion. The flavour in the juniper berries comes from the essential oils contained within the berries, if the sachet wasn’t sealed correctly by our packaging machine then it is possible that some of these oils would have been lost and the flavour may be less strong than we would expect it to be.
