I'm currently operating a 250Litre pot still with 5'' SGK Pro column with 3 bubble plates. My initial product was a poitín, which is now on the market and is being very well received. The next brand is going to be a gin. I want to create a neutral spirit base for the gin - we're aware that neutral spirit is cheaper and easier to buy but we don't always go the easy route. Creating our own base spirit will enable us to have a truly handcrafted product. I know I need a gin basket to vapour infuse the botanicals.
How many plates would I need to get a neutral spirit - it doesn't need to be as neutral as a vodka. Can we count the gin run as further refinement of the spirit if the gin basket is after the plates phase?
