Mercury Gin is made in England using the traditional ?pot still? method. During the careful crafting of Mercury Gin the neutral spirit is ?charged? with the unique combination of botanicals the day before distillation, so that they have time to ?rest?. This mixture is then distilled again to produce a superior triple-distilled product. Contrary to the presently popular practice among some distillers of using a confusing number of botanicals, (as many as twenty) which tends to result in a unfocused taste, Mercury Gin is made with a few carefully selected botanicals and blended in a special formula. The all-natural botanicals used are Juniper, Coriander, Angelica, Lemon, Orris, Liquorice, Almond, Cassia and Orange. The spirit and botanical mixture is then distilled in the pot still, and the vapor condensed, leaving a high alcohol product. This is then brought down to 47% (US 94 proof) with the addition of de-mineralized water. The Final result of all this labor of love is the sublime Mercury Gin. It is know as a spirit of medium intensity of Juniper notes, with a sweet fruit character coming through on the initial nose. The tste is exquisitely soft and always smooth.
