About Us


Who we are

Kelly and Ross. We have created The Capital Distillery out of pure curiosity and are on a journey to see what's next. Our distillery manager, Scotch is usually by our side, keeping an eye on things. 

Not scared of hard work, we make everything from scratch including our own neutral spirit. We are very proud and dedicated to our craft so our product remain exclusive and rare. 

We like to pay homage to the raw material that makes spirist so unique in their flavour. We therefore pride our spirits as not having any additives, flavourants or colourants. Just a clean pure spirit, distilled the way they should be.

 

Our Values

Authenticity- we are real, do real things

Learning- always room for improvement

Honesty- we're fans of cutting through the clutter and giving you the real story! We believe that integrity forms the basis of our brand and take it into consideration for our triple bottom line.

Fun- for what else then?

Customers- it is such a privilege to have people taste, drink and enjoy what we have created and we will work relentlessly to ensure this for all time! 

The Capital Gin Process

Step number 1: Wash hands. Seems silly but as we ferment our own base neutral we have to make sure ourselves and our instruments are clean and sanitized.  We source grains from local farmers which we cook, ferment and the distill. 

This distillation takes place twice. The 3rd distillation is done in a copper potstil where we distill our gins with their botanicals using vapour infusion. 

Once we have collected our required 'hearts' from that run it then rests for a few days. From there we dilute down to 43% alcohol using spring water. It rests again and then its ready to bottle, label, sign, wax and kiss. 

That's it! We pride ourselves on not having any additives, clarifiers, purifiers, etc to our gins. What you see, smell and drink comes straight from the pots. We do not even filter our product. Just some pure, clean gin!

Last step: Cheers!
