Gin kit

It is a birthday gift, when it was shipped the tins were open and all over the box. I contacted Grommet and they let the supplier know what happened. In 4 days of getting the original box I had replacement tins and the whole time grommet kept me informed of what was going on. I think this is a great company and my brother in-law loved his gift.

Thank You

Hi John - Joe, the owner here. I'm very sorry you feel this way about the Kit. We didn't build the Kit to be a bargain - it's meant to makeeant to make good quality, unique, small batch gin -- which isn't necessarily cheap. We're selling the experience and the exclusivity of crafting something that not just any Tom, Dick or Harry can pick up down at the local ABC store.

Also - refills are available on our site for $10 a pop, so you can actually make unlimited batches of gin once you own the other components. Also, keep an eye out for different blends in the future.

This nicely packaged kit was a gift for my son. It came with clear instructions. I can recommend it as a unique item.


novel idea - well designed

We tried the product the weekend we opened it, We will modify the batch a little next time. The materials are of a good quality. The process is fun and the results are enjoyable. The reference to cheap vodka as a source is over done. Vodka may be seem flavorless, but poor vodka is poor vodka. The tincture process of gin can not over-ride poor vodka.More > < Less

About The HomeMade Gin Kit

Raise the Bar

If the thought of making gin at home conjures images of Prohibition-era bathtub distilleries, have no fear. With the HomeMade Gin Kit, you can make a small batch of gin at home without costly (or illegal) distilling equipment. All you need is the kit and a bottle of vodka.

Joe Maiellano and Jack Hubbard, two self-described alcohol enthusiasts from Washington, D.C., created the HomeMade Gin Kit. Joe and Jack thought about starting their own distillery, but decided that teaching people to make gin was more doable and equally inspiring.

In just 36 hours, you can transform vodka into gin. The key to the transformation is juniper berries, which give gin its distinctive flavor. After the juniper, the HomeMade Gin Kit adds carefully selected spices, botanicals, flowers and aromatics to round out the flavor and create a subtle, fragrant spirit.

The kit comes with all the herbs and spices you need, plus a strainer, funnel, and two glass bottles for storing the gin. For yourself or a favorite mixologist, the HomeMade Gin Kit is the ultimate science kit for grownups who like to imbibe. It’s creative, educational, and totally enjoyable.
