Spirit Infusion Kit

  1. Q: Can this kit be used to infuse other spirits besides vodka?  A: Yes, the same principles apply to infusing Rum, Whiskey, Gin, etc.  The 110 page Recipe Book has plenty of ideas for different fusions, just swap out the booze.  We recommend vodka because it is a clean and neutral spirit, allowing the infusion ingredients to shine in all their glory.  Otherwise, there are plenty of other recipes available online, or get creative and enjoy making your own concoction that suits your specific taste.  
  2. Q: How much does this kit make at a time? A: The kit includes a 1000ml Infusion Jar & 750ml Liquor Bottle with Cork Top, which is typically large enough for vodka and infusion ingredients to make a finished 750ml of infused goodness.  
  3. Q: How do you use the fine mesh filter disc? A: The filter disc slips over the post of the removable strainer, keeping it in place, filtering out fine particulates like pulp for example.
  4. Q: What is the shelf life of the infusion? A: The infused results are amazing and likely won’t last long, but if you plan to keep your infusion around for a couple months, we recommend placing it in the fridge.
  5. Q: Can the end product be Gluten-Free?  A: Yes, we recommend you use Tito’s Handmade Vodka, which is made from corn, and as a distilled spirit, is completely gluten-free.
  6. Q: What items or ingredients would you pair with this kit? A: We recommend including a bottle of a premium but not too expensive bottle of vodka, such as Tito’s.  You could also include infusion ingredients such as fruit (pomegranate, strawberries, pineapple, berries, etc), vegetables (peppers, cucumbers, etc), herbs (basil, dill, etc), spices (ginger, cinnamon, etc), or even candy (peppermint, root beer barrels, etc).
  7. Q: Does this kit work for making DIY Natural Flavorings?  A: One can easily make vanilla or mint extract, to name a couple. As for vanilla extra, take 4-5 vanilla beans, split down the middle, place into the 1000mL infusion jar that comes with the kit, add 8 ounces of vodka or bourbon and infuse for a month or longer depending on taste. The results are fantastic!
