About English Spirits

About English Spirits
The spirit industry in England is all about gin; indeed a "London dry gin" is one of the iconic styles of this spirit. Gin has been produced in England for four centuries and today, there are numerous brands that are known around the world; some of them labeled "export strength" have as much as 47% alcohol.

A classic British gin offers notes of juniper, lime, pepper and sometimes even notes of citrus, pine and rose. While most are used in cocktails, some are refined enough to be enjoyed neat.
