Invert Syrup:
6 kg / 13.2 lb of table sugar
4 l / 4.23 quarts water
2 teaspoons of cream of tartar
Simmer for 20 min

Add 1 cup of chopped raisins, the invert syrup and enough water to make a total volume of 60L / 15.8 gal. Use hot or cold water as needed to achieve a pitching temp of 22c / 71f.

Ferment for around 2 weeks until 3 hydrometer readings in a row show no change and register under 1.005.

Perform 3 stripping runs collecting all low wines down to 10% coming off the spout.

Perform a spirit run ideally with a power controller. Collect at “drip drip spirt”. Collect cuts into individual jars. Once the run has finished make conservative cuts based on flavour and smell.

Proof the spirit down to 55% ABV and age with roughly 7 medium-sized, well chared US white oak dominoes per 2.5-3 l of spirit. Optionally you can use second use oak.

Age for at least one-month tasting occasionally. If it is getting too tannic remove half the wood and let sit for a while longer.
