Gin is usually colorless and is made from grain or molasses and receives the flavor mostly from the flavoring with juniper berries and coriander or other spices. The name Gin he received in England in the 17th century, when French and Dutch brought a liquor “Jenever”.
Today we basically distinguish between 5 types:
• London Dry Gin (dry)
• Dry Gin (dry, less juniper-colored)
• Plymouth Dry Gin (sweeter and spicier)
• Old Tom Gin (sweeter)
• Genever (sweeter and more aromatic)
Gin is the main ingredient of many cocktails, i.a. Gin Tonic, Gin Fizz, Martini, Basil Smash, etc, but can also be enjoyed pure, if it is high quality.
