Making your own booze can be a nightmare of misunderstood directions, expensive equipment, and accidentally blowing your house up. Lucky for you, a DC company has launched the Homemade Gin Kit, a quick, fairly foolproof way to transform your vodka into gin in a matter of 36 hours without even requiring a bathtub, though you are fully encouraged to drink the finished product in the bath.
But is it really that easy... or very good? To find out, we made a batch and put it up against other gins from the bottom and top shelf. Then we took a long, hot bath... mainly because we spilled gin everywhere.
