Gin has a fascinating history that goes back to when the first spirits were distilled in Europe, starting as medicine, turning into a social problem, to rise again and establish itself as the pinnacle of cocktail sophistication.
It can be produced from any neutral grain spirit using a continuous still with botanicals added to flavor the liquid resulting in a dry liquid with intense aromas (predominantly juniper berries but may also include coriander, citrus peel and licorice...).
- The best quality gins are then redistilled in a pot still with the presence of botanicals
- For London Dry Gins, after the addition of the botanicals, the gin is redistilled to fix the aromas in the spirit.
None are aged post production.
