The Gin is distilled using a Handmade German 230Lt Copper Pot Still with a Vapour Basket, called Brunhild. 12 botanicals are sourced from all over the world, with the Juniper and Cardamom macerated with the base spirit for 24 hours, prior to distillation. The Rose petals are placed in the vapour basket and the resulting spirit is cut with water drawen from a borehole within the Estate.
