These essences are developed and imported from New Zealand where home distilling is legal and very popular. Still Spirits has developed a range of flavours inspired by spirits and liqueurs all over the world. Each flavour is designed to be added to a neutral spirit and adds the specific alcohol flavour you desire. The ‘Top Shelf’ range of flavours are beautifully presented in 50ml bottles that are labelled individually to indicate the spirit or liquor they evoke. Each essence bottle will flavour three standard size 750ml bottles..

It’s not rocket science, just a fun and easy way to make the drinks you enjoy, at a price you can afford. What’s more, is if you follow the easy recipe guidelines and use the right flavour and sweetenings mixed into your spirit base, the drink you make will taste so good your friends will find it hard to believe you made them yourself!!
One of the issues you may encounter is proofing your distillates. When you add the flavoring and sugars your proof will be reduced. One way to compensate for this is to first determine the volume of water you will be adding to hit your proof target, then add the flavoring and sweeteners as part of the liquid you will be adding.
SO that was a lot of information. We’re a regular local brick and mortar homebrew store and would like to have your business.
