What are Botanicals? | Soli Gin, Cyprus

Handcrafted

Small Batch Distilled Gin

Produced using purified neutral alcohol of roughly 96% Gin can be formulated from grain or a by-product of grapes or molasses. Botanicals are wrapped in muslin or similar material, using time-honoured techniques. It is then steeped in the base alcohol inside a traditional copper still, for up to 48 hours before the distillation process commences.

Excited and enthusiastic by this little success, the next question was how and if the gin could be produced on a commercial scale.

And, the seed of an idea was planted. […read more]
