Recipe development

This is the full package for creating a new and exciting spirit. We first have a conversation about your ideas and wishes, so we have a perfect image of what you are looking for in your drink. We then make a first recipe here at iStill HQ and send you two bottles of 0.5 litres of your drink (at drinking strength) for evaluation. Based on your impression and feedback we perfect the recipe. If necessary we make a second batch for you to test again. We then send you the complete recipe, including all the steps programming your iStill or we can even do the contract distilling for you.
