Sue Telford is a 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 distill to within a tenth of a degree and gained her rectifiers and compounders licenses.
As a keen cook, she loved experimenting with flavors 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.
