Ditto, Odin. Was wondering about your absence.
Your return has prompted my ordering the Juniper & Coriander to make your gin.

I also have to tell you, Odin, how much my friends and I enjoy your Cornflake Whiskey.
I get more compliments on that stuff than you'd believe.

I agree. Just mixed the neutral, peel, coriander, and juniper to let sit for 2 weeks.
Already smells like a top shelf gin.
Odin, you've done it again. Waiting is so tough....

Found a pretty good price on Amazon for regular juniper berries: https://www.amazon.com/Juniper-Berries-Frontier-Natural-Products/dp/B0012BUL96

Price is in the right ballpark, but shipping to Canada is usually a non starter.

I buy my botanical from a Canadian company TradeTechnocrats. Juniper is going for $13.99/lb CAD. https://trade-technocrats-ltd.myshopify.com/products/juniper-berries?variant=13904532102

I was afraid there'd be excessive shipping to Canada thru Amazon. Now I know.
I scaled 3 liters of this easy gin and it's sitting for 2 weeks in the basement. The fresh berries seem a much better route than having to use dried.
Hopefully Canuckwoods sees YOUR source, then.
