How do you make Hops & Honey gin?

We've had a lot of questions regarding how exactly we go about making our infamous gin, so we thought we'd give you a little insight!

There's multiple ways of producing gin, however here we use a traditional 'Steep & Boil' method, which essentially involves the botanicals being soaked in a spirit before being distilled.

You can purchase Sheffield Dry Gin Hops & Honey here.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Ethanol, which we use as a neutral spirit, is cut from 96.3% to around half of that, which is done using water to reduce its strength.

2. Our expertly selected botanicals are then added before being allowed to steep in the spirit for around 24hrs, before then being strained out.
