What makes gin “gin”?

It is believed that the first gin was produced in mid-16th century made from a source of distilled malt wine. The juniper berry was initially incorporated as an available means to mask the inherent unpleasant flavour. This style of gin is known as “Genever”, which evolved in the 1900s into two sub categories based on newer distilling techniques.

Most of the gins produced today are made in the “London Dry” style. This process uses a neutral alcohol base, which in contrast to Genever is lighter on both the nose and palate, with a predominant flavour of juniper berry.

The relaxed definition of what constitutes ‘gin’ has allowed for great experimentation, particularly in recent years. Animus Distillery’s three variations of the London Dry style are testament to this. All of our gins incorporate juniper as a key note. Beyond this, the rest is at the inspiration of our team of Spirit Geeks!
