Jekka's Herb Infused Gin

Jekka's Herb Infused Gin

Anyone that has tried Jekka's editions of 6 O'Clock gin know that fresh herbs infused in gin is delicious. It is also incredibly simple to make your own infusions at home. Jekka's favourites are:

  • Red rubin basil (Ocimum basilicum var. purpurascens 'Red Rubin');
  • Lemon grass (Cymbopogon flexuosus);
  • Jekka's gin - 1 sprig bay (Laurus nobilis), 1 sprig rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), 1 sprig thyme (Thymus vulgaris).


  • Get a suitable bottle; ensure it is clean by washing and scalding in boiling water and allowing to cool.
  • Fill with gin.
  • Add herbs.
  • Leave to infuse for a few days on the window sill.
  • Enjoy.
