What is the distilling process?
We start in the bush with the careful selection and curation of each of our botanicals. These plants must be of the finest quality so we can best capture the aromatic flavours and aroma each botanical represents to create our alcoholic free spirit
To make Banks, we run five separate distillations, each with their own tailored method. We then blend these together to create that distinctive Banks flavour. This takes time. And even though there are speedier ways to distil, we are unhurried because we only want the best extracts from each botanical.
One of the key reasons we distill in the Yarra Valley is to enable us to use Yarra Valley water. The water comes from the fresh mountain sources and we think our water contributes to our high quality.
The still is then filled with water and then heated.
Some Botanicals ae distilled in the pot ensuring that as the water heats up the vapours and aromas of the Botanicals are carried upwards and extracted from our botanicals.
Some botanicals are distilled in our copper baskets which means that once the Vapour from the pot passes through these more delicate botanicals the vapour lift and carry to botanical aroma.
Inflused vapour moves to the condensing column, where the copper starts to coolreturning the vapour to liquid that is now infused with the Botanical aroma.
The 5 Botanical distillations are then expertly blended to create Banks Botanicals
All that is left to do is mix it the way you want and enjoy!
