The Still Magic approach considers the following key principles which will help all budding gin makers

  • less is more
  • simplicity is best
  • there is neither a right nor wrong answer; there is only the best answer

Releasing "your" gin at scale requires skills in decision-making, investigation, sampling, testing, improvements and launching. Each of these skills describe the DISTIL framework, and each step has a key question to answer.

This episode describes a tried and trusted way to tackle the challenge and to set yourself up for success.

Be bold. Enjoy yourselves. Let's create the next gin narrative.
