Scott Street London Style Gin Description ...
The Scott Street Gin was first released in 2015, using 9 locally sourced botanicals which are allowed to soak in the base spirit for 24 hours prior to distillation. The botanicals are then added to the custom made Copper Pot Still, named 'Betty' with the base spirit and distilled 5 times, producing 450 bottles at a time. The process wastes zero water, with the excess passed to local farmers for use on their farms and the heads and tails given to local wineries for use as a sanitizer.

Finish - "Earthy-tailed pepper finish, round summery softness accented with spice."
