WHAT IS GIN?
Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries. From its earliest origins in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved over the course of a millennium from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry.
5 TYPES OF GIN...
London Dry - Very dry, light bodied, and pungent, this is what most of us think of when we think of gin.
Plymouth - Though originally as rich as a Dutch genever, today this regional gin, made only in Plymouth, England, is as clean and bracing as a London dry
Old Tom - London dry's sweeter, fuller-bodied parent has only recently come back on the market after decades in suspended animation
Genever - This style—the original—uses a malt-spirit base, making it not unlike a flavored whiskey. Less botanical than the English styles, and more sippable
International Style Gin - An umbrella term used to refer to all of the new styles of gin that use the same base distilling process but are predominantly infused with flavors other than juniper berries
