Steps to make a coconut fat washed whisky:

  • Melt 120 ml of coconut oil if it's hardened, cool it down and pour the liquid fat into a glass jar/ empty jam bottle.

  • Add 500 ml of whisky, put the lid on the jar and give it a nice shake.

  • Leave it at room temperature for about 4 to 5 hours for the flavours to infuse, then put the jar in the freezer overnight.

  • The next day, the fat would have solidified on top of the spirit. Using a knife, make a hole through the congealed fat and pour the spirit through a fine strainer lined with a cheesecloth. If required, fine strain again through a coffee filter to remove any left-over solids.
