Our focus at Hopscotch is you. At hopscotch we believe in relationships and our ethos of quality small batch, bespoke products is part of our DNA. We don’t just want you to buy our Gin (or for that matter our even smaller batch beers!) – we want to you to experience them as part of great shared memories
We would love to hear your stories of where you first tried our Gins’, what you were doing! For example, were you saluting the sunset in the Outback, or sitting in a long boat in the Okavango Delta – or perhaps you were summiting some small hillock of special meaning. If it made a moment special for you – if it helped create a lasting memory – then THIS is what drives us.
Our process is a simple one – but the devil is always in the detail. Unlike many craft distillers, we undertake our own fermentations and perform our own distillations – we don’t simply import ready to use alcohol. We also run multiple distillations for purity.
Our process is a combination of botanical steeping and vapour infusion. First, we add our secret recipe of botanicals’ to the cherished still so as to carry across subtler aroma’s and flavours. Then, its time to carefully steep with selected botanical’s for aroma impact and mouth feel.
Cradle to grave distillations with this process are time consuming. But – its what makes our craft unique! One of the flip sides of our process geometry is that we have designed flexibility into our equipment, which will allow us to dabble in small batch craft beers in our future, and perhaps, a few other spirits too. All hand crafted, all small batch. When you visit us – you may find yourself actually surprised to be trying some of our other finer products – and we hope you look forward to this. For now we present to you Ginius!
