The next time it's your turn to host, make sure to impress your guests with the help of Mad Millie's Handcrafted Gin Kit. Mad Millie makes it easy for you to create your own London dry style gin from ordinary vodka, using a botanical blend of juniper berries, coriander, liquorice root and citrus peels.

To make:

  1. Pour 1L of vodka into the 1L jar provided in the kit.
  2. Add the Mad Millie botanicals into the jar with vodka.
  3. Gently stir then leave to steep for 48 hours so the botanicals can infuse.
  4. Fold the filter paper into quarters and open one fold to form a tight cone shape. Place into the funnel.
  5. Place the funnel into the bottle and slowly pour the freshly made gin into the funnel.
  6. The filtered liquid should be free of any botanical solids and display a lovely golden hue. Label and enjoy!

DIY Kombucha Kit

Kombucha is great for your digestion, rids your body of toxins, and boosts your energy. So why not try making your own kombucha using Mad Millie's live culture (SCOBY) which turns sweetened tea into a delicious, fizzy beverage.

Fermenting kombucha yourself gives you the creative license to make it as tarte and zingy as you want. Once activated, your scoby can be reused time and time again. The DIY process will take about 20 minutes on hand and then 8-25 days to ferment (depending on your taste preference). Trust us, it's worth the wait!

Old Fashioned Ginger Beer Kit

What do you prefer, alcoholic or non-alcoholic ginger beer? The choice is yours with Mad Millie DIY Old Fashioned Ginger Beer Kit.

Get to know what ingredients are used in ginger beer and make your drink from scratch. We were suprised to know it requires just ginger, brown sugar, fresh lemon juice, ginger beer yeast, water and nothing more. 

DIY's are not only fun, but they also allow you to make food and drink your own — a little bit more or a little bit less of something, to reach your exact taste preference. We love Mad Millie for making these DIY's rather easy. Each kit is packed with easy to follow instructions and delicious recipes to draw our cooking inspo from! Shop now.
