The Effects of Gin Preparation on Final Sugar Content



After a low-stress refresher in chemistry, this session will address the relationship between botanicals and sugar, and analytical techniques for sugar determination. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to determine sugar profiles of both professionally- and lab-crafted gins. Individual sugars were identified and compared to common gin flavoring botanicals with the ultimate goal of understanding what each botanical contributes to the overall gin profile.
