Homemade Gin Kit

Embrace the do-it-yourself spirit by making a batch of aromatic gin using your favorite vodka as the base.

$20.00 - 50.00

Slow Gin

Relive Prohibition without all the pesky illegalities, bathtub hooch, and glamorous parties hidden behind secret speakeasy doors--okay, that last one sounds pretty great. Filled with hand-selected and aromatic juniper berries, mixed spices, and more, this DIY gin kit lets you brew your own batch without a flurry of distilling equipment.

Simply start with a bottle of your favorite vodka, which acts as a blank canvas, then add the included spices and botanicals. Let your ingredients steep for 36 hours before enjoying your very own happy hour-ready mix, touched with hints of lavender, sandalwood, and green cardamom. Two included bottles display your tipples with pride, while the small batch mix tastes great on the rocks, with a splash of tonic, or an aromatic addition to a Negroni. Made in USA.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Homemade Gin Kit:

    I bought a collection of items for my husband for Christmas. We've made infused liquors previously, and he's a big martini guy, so I thought this would be fun. While it was super easy to follow the instructions, the end result was a disgusting, pee-colored concoction that tastes NOTHING like gin. Perhaps without the second tin of "botanicals" it would be better, but the rose hips, lavender and other herbs overpowers the juniper. It really turned my stomach and frankly was a waste of a very nice bottle of vodka.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Homemade Gin Kit:

      I gave this as a Christmas gift to close friends that are newlyweds. They are food and booze connoiseurs, as I like to describe them and they were ecstatic about it. I thought it would be nice for them to make it together. However, I have to be honest and say I thought it would be more intricate and time consuming. It was extremely simple which made it feel less "homemade" to me. But the least appealing thing to me was that I still had to buy a bottle of vodka to go along with the kit. The kit made a great gift but overall it was extremely overpriced.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Homemade Gin Kit:

      The gift contained a bottle, 2 tins of herbs and a sieve. I thought everything needed to make the gin would be included, and didn't realize I would need to purchase vodka to accompany the gift as well. I could have purchased all the parts & pieces for less than I paid. Not worth the money at all.

              The kit came earlier than I thought, I didn't pick expedited shipping either. My husband and I don't exchange many gifts for Christmas, but when he opened the homemade gin kit he said "wait I didn't get you anything FUN!" that is a sure sign it is a great gift!

                  This was one of the best gifts I have ever given my husband. He was thrilled with it. He made it right away. It was easy to do. It was fun for him. we just sampled it and it tasted delicious (less juniper than a typical gin which I enjoyed). It was fun for him to bring as a sharing item to an event we went to. He loves it. I would order it again in a heartbeat.

                        I bought this for my brother-in-law also known as the guy-who-has-everything...but he didn't have this and was delighted to discover that he could now pretend to be a prohibition era booze monger making white lightening in his own granite counter-topped suburban home. If you only sold tommy guns, he could realize his dram(See what i did there? Google it)...I mean dream. Thanks Uncommongoods. On a side note I also ordered a lovely organic cotton baby blanket with a microscope on it for my sister who is presently pregnant with a nerd baby and was dubbed the Winner of Christmas.
