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 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.
- Tanqueray London Dry Gin 750ml
- 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.
- Citadelle Gin de France 750ml
- Plymouth Gin: must be made in Plymouth, England and has a slightly sweeter flavor.
- Plymouth English Gin 750ml
- Barrel-Aged Gin: This Gin is aged in oak barrels, unlike other gins, giving it a malty flavor. This one is acceptable to drink neat.
