This infusion bears absolutely no relation to gin flavour. It doesn’t even really infuse the flavours, since it is made with cold water. At best, a kind of watery cucumber juice with hint of mint. At worst - I tipped it down the sink. Really disappointing.

How long will this mix last for in a fridge or normal storage as I would like to make a batch.

Thanks for your question. We'd suggest keeping this for a few days in the fridge. It's not designed to be kept for a long time.
