As well as a copper pot still, the distillery at Hepple has two additional systems. A glass still utilizes vacuum distillation to capture fresh, zesty notes from local botanicals that are sourced from the surrounding hills, including from the young green juniper. Another system uses high-pressure extraction to release the intricacies of the ripe juniper berries, and thus delivers further tiers of flavour, texture and finish. Master Distiller Chris Garden explains, “By using three different processes for juniper we can layer what we could describe as the bass, the tenor and the soprano parts of what is gin’s traditional leading act.
