When one thinks of the America during Prohibition, so this is almost inevitably associated with Al Capone and arranged by him alcohol smuggling across the country's borders. Despite all the legends about the "myth Capone", it was hardly possible to supply the criminals of that time the entire population of illegal alcohol. That is why many people their familiar spirits set forth in their own homes themselves. For example, denatured alcohol was legally purchased, or illegal substandard alcohol, and these flavored along with juniper and other spices in a bathtub. After a few days or weeks the spices gave enough flavor from to mask the taste of the denaturant or the fusel alcohols halfway. In this way produced spirits were given the name "Bathtub Gin" and were spread throughout much of the population. She led ultimately to the end of Prohibition, because of substandard alcohol almost always led to illness, blindness or even death and the health system therefore strongly loaded than quality legal alcohol. The Englishman Cornelius Ampleforth leaves the idea of Bathtub Gin revive. However, only high-quality ingredients are used, of course. Cornelius Ampleforth applicable in the international spirits scene as "mad professor", who experimented in their own homes with ancient and modern recipes and production methods for many years. In autumn 2011 he finally went after his dream and started his own business with a small liquor factory. One of the first products of Professor Cornelius Ampleforth was the Bathtub Gin. This is produced at the same time as in the time, in tiny amounts of only about 30-60 bottles and used as botanicals among others juniper, orange peel, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. All spices that were good also available during Prohibition.
