The distillery has a mini-still, which is used for making small batches of gin from different recipes. The recipe for Broker's Gin is 200 years old and was chosen after taste-testing against several newer recipes. Often the old ones are the best ones.

  • The base spirit for Broker's Gin is quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit made from English wheat.
  • The flavour is provided by ten natural botanicals, the primary one of which is juniper berries – as in all gins.
  • The botanicals are steeped - soaked - in the base spirit in the still for 24 hours.
  • This is the first part of the flavour-infusion process.
  • The still is then fired up for the final, fifth distillation, which completes the process.
