Re: [new_distillers] juniper berries
- You can order juniper berries at www.penzeys.com It's an American company
out of Wisconsin. I have ordered from them. They have good products, prices
and fast service. I use juniper berries by simmering them in 50% vodka for
ten minutes (with the lid on), then letting it cool overnight on it's own.
The next day I filter this mess through a couple of coffee filters to get a
homemade (and better quality) gin essence. I use about 35 grams of juniper
berries (crushed) and 350ml of vodka- 5ml (one teaspoon) will turn a bottle
of vodka into a light flavored gin. 10ml make a more traditional, strong
flavored gin. you can add other spices like cardamom, coriander, and lemon
peel (about one gram of each) for a more complex flavor in your gin. Using
10ml makes a straw yellow colored drink. hope this helps.
- Health food stores sell them in packets as well as the oris root and coriander root needed for the gin tasteShirl de Santos-----Original Message-----Greetings all!
