The Art of Distillation

At Capricorn Distilling, the creation of our Summer Gin is both a science and an art. Our master distillers begin by selecting the finest botanicals, each chosen for its unique contribution to the gin's flavor profile. These botanicals are then macerated in a high-quality grain spirit to extract their essential oils and flavors.

The macerated botanicals are carefully distilled in traditional copper pot stills. Copper is known for its excellent heat conductivity and its ability to remove impurities, resulting in a smoother, cleaner spirit. During distillation, the skillful separation of the heads, hearts, and tails ensures that only the purest and most flavorful portions are used.

Our Summer Gin undergoes multiple distillations to achieve the perfect balance of flavors. Each batch is meticulously tested and tasted to ensure consistency and quality. The final product is a gin that is both complex and harmonious, with a vibrant and refreshing character.
