World Best Gin

 

The basis for the worlds best gin and gin’s unique flavor is the infusion of juniper berries as well as other potential botanicals giving way to a pine like aroma. The result is commonly high-proof, light-bodied and clear drink. Gin has been often associated with the classic martinii with an olive.

Gin originated as a medicinal liquor made by monks and alchemists across Europe, particularly in southern France, Flanders and the Netherlands, to provide aqua vita from distillates of grapes and grains. It then became an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Gin emerged in England after the introduction of the jenever, a Dutch and Belgian liquor that was originally a medicine.

Gin today is produced in different ways from a wide range of herbal ingredients, giving rise to a number of distinct styles and brands. After juniper, gin tends to be flavored with botanical/herbal, spice, floral or fruit flavors or often a combination. It is most commonly consumed mixed with tonic water. Gin is also often used as a base spirit to produce flavored, gin-based liqueurs, traditionally produced by the addition of fruit, flavourings and sugar.

Gin was very popular in the 19th century England where it could be produced essentially by anyone and without any type of license. This resulted in many early social problems causing the governing bodies in institute heavy taxes to decrease availability.

London Dry Gin is the default definition of spirit, but there are many styles, including:

  • London Dry Gin: By definition the juniper berry must be the prime flavor. However, this gin does not need to be made in London or in the UK.

  • Modern Gin: This Gin emphasizes botanical dominance other than predominately juniper berries such as lavender, cucumber, rose coriander and citrus. This appeals to those that don’t like the strong flavor of the juniper berries.
