My Dad absolutely loved this gift. The only reason I dropped it one star is that you have to buy a bottle of Vodka to complete the kit, but without opening the kit I wasn't able to find any information on suggested types of Vodka. So I went to the liquor store and ask them for some help. It ended up being a great gift and it is incredibly unique.
My father-in-law loves gin and thought this was a really clever gift. He was excited to try it!
Very easy and fun to do

It was a nice surprise and he loves it!
Bought this as a gift for my dad and he was ecstatic! Can't wait to try his homemade Gin
The end result tasted pretty great!
We used 100 proof vodka for this kit and the gin is so delicious!
This was a birthday gift for my fiance and he really enjoyed making the gin and then sharing it with friends.
They charge around $20 for two small tins of ingredients, enough to make one bottle. To buy it again, I'd need to get 3-4 times as much at that price.
I found the flavor works better if its soaked in a whole liter bottle of vodka, instead of the recommended size bottles. If the companion bottle kit is used, the flavor is entirely too strong at that size, only use those bottles for storage and presentation. I've ordered this kit before, will probably order it again... it's lovely!
