Rainbows & Homemade Hessian Sacks,

This week we’ve been playing around with different types of distillations and really small batch experimentation.  The gins that we produce are already made on a small scale, roughly 80 bottles a distillation which in comparison to may distillers is very small, but we took this even smaller so we could play around with flavour. 

Graham’s experience as an analytical chemist means he’s always keen to play with the chemistry side of the process so the distillery has been engulfed (between distillations) with conical
flasks, botanicals and notebooks.  We don’t have a new gin yet but it’s always fun to see how different flavors work together and the more we play around the more we can offer something bespoke to our customers.

Whilst Graham has been housed in the distillery I have been out and about looking for some autumn inspiration around the farm.  The one bonus of the continued wet weather has been the appearance of a number of rather spectacular rainbows.  Nature often has a habit of throwing these at us when we have nothing to capture them on or more typically when we are driving!
I got lucky this week and actually managed to picture one, on film, over one of the hills on the farm.  If only every cloud had a rainbow as well as a silver lining!

Holiday Gifts

My other main focus has been starting to sew gift bags for some of our walnut harvest, ready for our Christmas gift boxes.  The over locker and sewing machine have been going full pelt and we finally have a couple of “real life, in person” Christmas fayres booked in and on the horizon so we are hoping the walnuts will be a popular addition over the festive period.  It feels far too long since we have been able to get out and about and meet with the fine people of Norfolk and enjoy sharing our gin with them so we are more than a little excited at the prospect of taking the distillery marquee on a road trip or two!
