Discover the varieties of gin
There are a number of gin categories to understand and explore – with individual distillation and production processes that make each of them unique. These include: Compounded Gin, Distilled Gin, Blended Gin, Plymouth, Old Tom and Sloe gin – Though, the most famous category of all – is London Dry Gin: This is obtained exclusively by the distillation of alcohol with juniper berries and other natural products. The addition of any other substance after distillation is forbidden, beyond neutral elements such as water and ethyl alcohol to dilute the result. In order to use the word ‘Dry’, the presence of sugar must be only 0.1% of the finished product – and must be of natural origin. Experiment with the different gin categories – and learn what works best for you.
