A new slant on the original. Always in search of improvement.
To make about 2ltrs of good Orange Gin.
2.5 ltrs 45% neutral
1 ltr Bottled Water
15g sweet Orange Peel
15g Bitter Orange Peel
5g licorice Root
5g Angelica
25g Juniper Berries
15g Corriander Seeds
a large pinch powdered Orris root.
Blitzed all ingredients in my Spice Crusher
Added Orange in the Sputnik first then all else on top, and spread
evenly to cover all the bottom of Sputnik.
Found a use for that Still Spirit hood infuser thing,
added 25g Bitter Orange Peel.
During distillation the smell was very Orangie YUM YUm.
I think the Orange on the bottom and the orange in the hood has made a big change.
Added 400ml fresh squeezed orange with Pectolase and 1.5 tsp Citric Acid.
Added all the zest from the 5 Orangesand watered down to 40%
Is now in a Kilner will shake daily and filter next Friday.
May add a little sugar?? May add a little more Citric Acid??
But for now am the proud owner of just over 2ltrs of Heaven.

:D wow you must REALLY like orange, i tried the adding orange juice thing a while ago, not a success so redistilled with a load more bitter orange, it was amazing - but sadly i think unrepeatable cos i can't remember what i did in the first place, so am hoarding the last jar and scowling at anyone else that looks at it

It's a USB drive, otherwise known as a dongle :roll:
Personally like my Lego one!
