My "Make your own gin at home" experiment has arrived at its conclusion. Since the last post, I've let the gin rest for a couple of days. Now it's time to pour it into a bottle, add a fancy label and, obviously, try it.
If you have no idea of what I'm talking about, you can find the first post here. Long story short, I tried to make my own gin at home, using vodka and some botanicals as a starter.
Choosing a name was a hard task, and I appreciated all the suggestions in the comments under the previous posts; but in the end I decided to name my gin after the comment that made me laugh the most.
Here it is! Thanks to Alessandro for the funny definition!
Hammond's Water is fairly appropriate, because I have to say that I've started to drink G&T (and to appreciate gin) because I was curious after seeing Hammond often portrayed with a G&T in hand. Generally, I'm not a fan of cocktails, but gin and G&T has conquered my heart – so here we are!
Due to the orange peels I've added in great quantity, the color is still orange-ish. We'll find out about the taste in the next (and last) post!
