About the author
Sue Telford is a Norfolk based writer and gin blogger with a passion for craft gin and home distilling. In 2017, inspired by the gin revolution, she bought a tiny 4L air still which she modified to enable her to distil to within a tenth of a degree and gained her rectifiers and compounders licenses. As a keen cook, she loved experimenting with flavours in the kitchen and it therefore seemed natural to turn her 9ft by 9ft kitchen into a part-time gin distillery where you can find her most weekends, foraging, macerating, steeping, distilling and tasting and generally having fun with botanicals
