Scientific Exploration of Juniper - Ginposium 2021

Matthew Pauley

The Gin Guild has been pushing frontiers in gin in recent years, including the now legendary Gin-Note, but have also been exploring the analytical and sensory science of gin.

In association with the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling at Heriot Watt University, The Worshipful Company of Distillers, Krautermix and Beacon Commodities, Mathew Pauley reviews the latest work exploring juniper, gin sensory performance and analytical chemistry and talk about the next steps for the research trying to gain greater understanding of the link between the gin in your glass and smell of the gin your nose.

Matthew Pauley has been assistant professor of distilling at the Heriot Watt International Centre for Brewing and Distilling since 2016. The centre is at the front of distilling education, having taught Brewing and distilling since 1903 in the home of distilling Scotland.
