Work in a distillery alongside a distiller

On the day you start by setting up the still ready for a distillation. 

David will instruct you fully on all the necessary safety step and precautions that you need to be aware of in distilling using your 96% Alchohol neutral grain spirit (NGS) to ensure that you can distill safely.

You will assist David Hemstock the head distiller in selecting the key botanicals to go into the small batch run of gin.  Having loaded up the still ready for the distillation David will guide you through the key points in the process.  You will assist him in his distilling run and he shows you the keys techniques of making the cuts for the heads and tails to ensure that the perfect smooth gin is extracted from the distilling process.
