Cold-compounding is a slightly different way to produce gin than the traditional method of distillation. Once you have an alcoholic liquid - which may already be a gin or simply a neutral spirit - you can part it down with your desired water and then steep your botanicals in the liquid, thereby surpassing the need for another distillation.

This is the case with St. Ives gin. After foraging the local hedgrerows and Cornish coastline, 13 botanicals are steeped in an alcoholic liquid that has been parted down with Cornish spring water. These ingredients, 8 of which are fresh, add flavours, aromas, and even colour to the gin. The ingredients used are kept a closely guarded secret.
