First: Grain neutral spirit (at 96% ABV) is infused with the all-natural flavours and aromas of BULLDOG Gin’s 12 distinctive botanicals inside a copper pot still. This allows the botanicals to macerate in the spirit before distilling, to release their essential oils, resulting in the creation of vapour.
Second: The resultant vapour passes through a condenser and is reliquefied to produce an essence. As a result of this, the “heads” (volatile compounds with low boiling points) and “tails” (volatile compounds with high boiling points) are separated from the distillate.
Third: The resulting essence (measured at 76% ABV) is compounded further with a wheat-based grain neutral spirit.
Fourth: The liquid is broken down with demineralised water to the required strength for bottling (40% ABV).
Fifth: Upon meeting discerning aromatic and flavour standards, only then can it be bottled and labeled as BULLDOG London Dry Gin.
