What is gin?
Gin is a clear spirit with a piney, botanical flavor thanks to its main ingredients: juniper berries and grains.
Taste: Most gin has notes of pine from the juniper, but every brand uses different ratios of botanicals and aromatics to achieve unique flavors. These can include citrus peel, angelica root, lavender, lemongrass, ginger root, rosemary, and more. Some brands are juniper-forward, have hints of citrus, are herbaceous and floral, and so on.
