Adnams First Rate Gin
Adnams from grain to glass, The Adnams First Rate gin is distilled from three locally-grown grains: barley, wheat and oats. Adnams Master brewer, Fergus Fitzgerald, makes a beer ‘wash’ from these grains which is fermented to around 6% abv without the addition of hops.
Then head distiller, John McCarthy takes this beer and puts it through a ‘beer stripping’ column which removes all the alcohols to create a ‘low wine’ (around 80 – 85% abv). The ‘low wines’ are subsequently distilled in rectification columns to create a clean, pure spirit. Only the very purest portion of the spirit is drawn off; the finest cut.
The spirit is then returned to the copper pot still to be redistilled and infused with thirteen carefully chosen botanicals.
