If you want to prepare gin your self, you can follow the advice of Federico, our italian Taster.

“I woke up one day and wanted to drink a gin & tonic so badly. Nothing strange in wanting some gin at 7am, all of a sudden I had an idea: I will craft my own gin! Just after typing “DIY GIN” on google I had the answer I was looking for: gin can be crafted at home and I was about to do it! Actually, the idea behind it is very easy, use a good vodka and infuse it with juniper and other botanicals. The Grey Goose magnum into the liquor cabinet was all I needed and it was asking for juniper!! After a quick stop at the herbalist’s, I was ready to go: 30 grams of juniper, few spoons of coriander, angelica and the 3 basics are there. I added a spring of flowering lavender, one of rosemary, a bit of natural lemon zest, a spoon of fennel, fresh oregano, one cinnamon stick. One of the best French vodkas was about to become a gin. After just 48 hours, the smell of my magic potion was just FAN TAS TIC! The rosemary, inspired by Gin Mare, give some fresh and Mediterranean notes, but it’s clearly the juniper that makes all the magic. First tasting turned out into 3 large glasses of gin & tonic…. I may have been influenced but it was the best g&t I have ever had! Just after that, I reminded the Essence video about cold brew gin tonic: amazing, it immediately became my summer drink. Coffee meets tonic so much better than I could imagine, I’m wondering why I never discover that before! I can’t wait to make a new batch of gin trying different spices and botanicals, it’s so easy to do than you should try!”
