Gin

Gin has been connected with the British Empire for centuries, but has seen an explosion of innovation in recent years.

 

A descendent of Dutch Genever, gin was introduced to England in the 17th Century. Its complicated relationship with us can be summed up by nicknames like Dutch Courage and Mother’s Ruin. These days gin has gained popularity as a versatile, aromatic craft spirit.

 

There are four legal categories for gin. Juniper Flavoured Spirit Drinks covers all of the early spirits, like genever, which are pot distilled, and then redistilled with juniper and other botanicals, before bottling at a minimum of 30% ABV. The most basic form of European Gin is simply a neutral grain spirit with natural botanical flavouring, predominantly juniper, and bottled at 37.5% ABV. Distilled Gin must use a high strength grain spirit that is redistilled with juniper and botanicals to impart flavour, rather than adding separate flavourings. London Gin has the further requirements that the final spirit must be dry and colourless with no further additives after distillation, except water.

 

As well as these classifications, there are also items like Sloe Gin and Old Tom Gin, which are fruit influenced or sweetened gin varieties. Between all of these different styles and the vast array of botanicals that can be used, there are a huge number of unique gins with their own flavour profiles, making gin an amazing spirit to experiment with in cocktails, with food or just as a refreshing Gin and Tonic.
