A deep drive into the world of Gin

What is Gin?

Gin is a clear spirit made by distilling fermented grains with aromatics like juniper, flowers, and fruits. Gin makers produce gin by infusing a neutral spirit with botanical ingredients during the distillation process.


    London Dry

    London Dry Gin doesn’t necessarily have to originate in England, but it is where the style originated. Juniper is typically the most immediately detectable botanical component of a London Dry Gin, with citrus, angelica root, and coriander rounding out the back end. Most London Dry Gin producers bottle their gin at a high proof, making the spirit very versatile for both shaken and stirred cocktails.


    Produced in the South of England and bottled at a lower proof, this gin is distinctly less juniper-forward than London Dry. Plymouth makes for a silky and subtle Martini, with earthy spice notes and a light salinity. Note that Plymouth does produce a Navy Strength gin—clocking in at 57 percent alcohol by volume, it is more akin to a London Dry in character and application. While most gin types can be produced by any distiller, Plymouth Gin Distillery in England is the only distillery with the rights to produce this type of gin

    Old Tom

    An older style of gin that has a rich, malty mouthfeel and a distinct citrusy sweetness, Old Tom Gin is sometimes aged in barrels, making it wonderful for shaken cocktails like a classic Tom Collins. It also holds its own in stirred cocktails like the classic Martinez.


    Genever is the precursor to modern gin. Originating in sixteenth-century Holland, genever is richer than gin, with a savory, earthy, malty flavor. Distillers make genever in Holland, Belgium, and certain parts of France and Germany, distilling it from malt wine spirits in lieu of neutral grain spirits.

    International Style

    New expressions of gin are appearing all over the globe seemingly every day, from Spain to Japan, Brazil to the United States. Freed from the traditional botanical trappings of the London Dry style, many contemporary gin producers craft their spirits as direct reflections of their geography, incorporating local roots and botanicals.
