Spirit Essences Easier, Consistently Great Tasting and Saves Time & Effort

GLOBAL FLAVOURS tastemeister Keith Emms has been in the business of developing quality spirit essences for over 25 years.

Keith has also been a professional chef, which enhances his ability to create, match and augment spirit essence tastes.

Spirit essences also bring consistency to the process, and also they make it so much easier to arrive at your final product.

“Spirit essences have a lot more going for them than just the taste,” says Keith.

As far as consistency goes, in most cases the flavour for spirit essences are extracted from the appropriate natural materials which will deliver the flavour.

When you have prepared your 40% clear spirit, all you need to do is add the spirit essence flavour of your choice.

As long as your alcohol is consistent every time, your final product will also be consistent.

“You can’t get easier than that – just add the spirit essence you want, and you’ve got your , bourbon, gin, tequila or liqueur, ready to drink,” says Keith.

Keith went on to say that producing a final drink from recipes from peaches or strawberries… or perhaps producing a bourbon from an old family recipe, can indeed produce a mighty fine drinking experience.

“But sometimes things can also go wrong, and all that time and effort has gone to waste.”

If home distillers stick to creating a good, clear spirit, they can add Global Flavours spirit essences and get a spread of drinks from the same run – for example, they can end up with bourbon, , gin and tequila on their shelf, all from the same run.”

Until next time… Happy Distilling!

  1. Keith,
    I’d like to make a copy of Johnny Walker Red
    I have a T500 , distill at around 52 to 54 degrees C and produce a very good spirit
    I have purchased Scottish Legend in the past which my wife likes , but I would like to get closer to Johnny Walker Red
    Any suggestion/s would be much appreciated
    Keep up the good work , it’s great to see a local small business doing a great job

    I’ve just got off the phone with Keith, and he recommends:
    1. Try 8 grams of oak chips in a litre for about 24 hours. I reckon check it every few hours and see how it’s going http://keithemms.com/product/genuine-usa-toasted-premium-oak-chips/
    2. Try a few drops of liquid smoke from an eyedropper. Remember, add small and try, add more and try – you’ll never get rid of the smoke if you put in too much http://keithemms.com/product/exclusive-double-strength-liquid-toasted-oak-smoke-for-home-distillers/
    3. Try a little Liquid Oak http://keithemms.com/product/premium-liquid-oak-extract-for-bourbon-whisky/
    I always reckon it’s best to add too little, taste then try a bit more
    Good luck with it mate
