Our Process

We love making gin so much we want to share our process with you!

Load Sketch

Charge & Load

The still is charged with ethanol & Speyside water and our botanical recipe is loaded to the vapour basket chamber.


This part takes time and patience, the still heats the liquid to a vapour, which meanders through to the vapour basket collecting the essence of the secret botanical recipe then onto the condensing tower where it is transformed back to a liquid

This liquid is our base spirit.

Distill sketch
Avva Scottish Gin - Watercolour Heart


In Gin distilling we have an output of ‘Heads, Hearts & Tails’ – we only use the heart in our Avva range of gins. 

Our ‘Heads & Tails’ will either go back to the charge or into our liqueurs.


The final step is to cut to bottling strength in a mixing tank. 

This give us a London Dry Gin, which is what we do with our Avva Scottish Gin & Navy Strength Gin.  However, some Gins require an additional process of maceration or infusion which varies from a few hours to several months

We bottle both by hand and through our bottling machines

All our products are bottled and labelled onsite
