Gin is in! Using a broad palette of botanicals and styles, craft distillers are creating unique expressions of gins that stand out on the shelf without needing to spend years in a barrel.

  • Discover what it takes to create your own gin,
  • Explore the individual botanicals used in gin making,
  • Examine the equipment required for developing a gin recipe,
  • Gain insights on how to adjust your recipe to bring out your desired flavors,
  • Learn best practices for scaling up a gin recipe.
