Frequently Asked Questions
Do the kits include alcohol?
No, they do not. All of our kits include the necessary equipment, botanical ingredients, and recipes with which you can make your own type of drink, based on your own preferences. The alcohol base you have to buy yourself.
What kind of alcohol base should I buy?
Don't worry about finding the right base for your drink! Below an overview of our recommendations per type of kit:
- DO YOUR WHISKEY: we recommend using a mild vodka as a base. Russian Standard or Smirnoff Vodka have proven particularly good here. You can also take a corn schnapps with the whiskey set. This can be found under the name "Moonshine", but this type is very rare.
- DO YOUR RUM: we advise a white rum that is as unaged as possible, because the restrained, light taste profile allows the mixed spices and fruits to stand out better.
- DO YOUR GIN: an Absolut Vodka tastes very neutral and is therefore a good base for creating a colorful new gin creation. A Three Sixty would be a bit more unusual, as it already comes with a light note of lemon and vanilla, which makes it extremely exciting mixing it with your own ideas. Good vodka doesn't have to be expensive, but if you still want to end up somewhere in the direction of 20 - 30$, we recommend a Finlandia. This has a little more alcohol content, the gin becomes a little stronger as a result.
- DO YOUR VODKA: just take your favorite vodka! Or use the recommendations above.
- DO YOUR TEQUILA: we recommend to use an unaged tequila as a basis for your infusion. This unaged tequila can be found in the shop as tequila 'blanco' or 'silver', and is most usually colourless transparent.
What is the volume of the bottles?
One bottle holds 12 fl oz. or 350 ml.
Can I also buy the botanicals separately?
Yes! And not just that, you can also order many other exciting gin botanicals from our online shop, such as rose petals. Make sure to take a look in our 'Shop' on top of the page.
