In brief after the Lavender Blossom must be harvested, then distilled in their fresh state or left to dry. All in all Lavender essential oil extracted from the fresh flowers obtain a fresh and green note. However dried Lavender obtains a deeper floral aroma.

Notably the first step in the making of Lavender Blossom essential oil is to harvest the plants. Ideally Lavender harvest the flowers in full bloom. Meaning that the flowers are developed and the entire flower head has opened. Although, quality oil is extracted from the flowers of the plant. There is a trace amount of oil in the stems of the plant. Typically not enough to justify the amount of space they will take in the equipment during distilling.

How do I know which Botanical I would prefer for my Infusion?

Generally speaking suggested as a beginner you take samples, (a shot glass), of a vodka of your choice and add each of your botanicals in tiny amounts to gauge the flavor and tastes you like.  Ultimately infusion length depends on the botanical strength.

Once you have done that, choose two of your samples that you really appreciated the flavors of and combine them.  Do that in as many combinations as you can and wish to create. After all as you continue to expose your palette you will be able to create your absolute unique botanical blend preference.  Ultimately doing it in this manner allows for the fact that you are able to identify, in simple way, the flavors you prefer.  Because Ketelkraal uses the same methodology when developing our own baselines and creating multi-flavor botanical kits at our plant.
