Grain neutral spirit (at 96% ABV) is infused with the 4 distinctive botanicals inside Botica’s copper pot still during 7 days. This allows the botanicals to macerate in the spirit before distilling, to release their essential oils, resulting in the creation of vapour.
Juniper (in Latin Juniperus), is used for digestion problems including upset stomach, heartburn, bloating, and loss of appetite, as well as gastrointestinal infections. It is also used for kidney and bladder stones.
Coriander (in Latin Coriandrum Sativum) seed are used for digestion problems including upset stomach, loss of appetite, hernia and nausea. It is also used to treat measles, toothaches and joint pain.
Cardamom (in Latin Cardamomum), is a botanical used for digestion problems including heartburn, intestinal spasms, constipation, liver and gallbladder complaints, and loss of appetite. It is also used for common cold and other infections, cough, bronchitis, sore mouth and throat, epilepsy, headache, and high blood pressure.
Hops (in Latin Humulus Lupulus), is a climbing plant belonging to the family of cannabáceas (distant cousin of Marijuana). Hops are commonly used orally for anxiety, sleep disorders such as the inability to sleep or disturbed sleep due to rotating or nighttime work hours, restlessness, tension and nervousness.
The resultant vapour passes through a condenser and is reliquefied to produce an essence. As a result of this, the ‘heads’ (volatile compounds with low boiling points) and ‘tails’ (volatile compounds with high boiling points) are separated from the distillate.
The resulting essence (measured at 76% ABV) is compounded further with a wheat-based grain neutral spirit.
The liquid is broken down with demineralized water to the required strength for bottling (37,5% ABV).
