About Flavored Gin

About Flavored Gin
All gins are flavored, however Flavored Gin is a white spirit that is flavored with juniper berries and so-called botanicals (a varied assortment of herbs and spices) and additional fruit or floral flavors or essences. The spirit base of Gin is primarily grain (usually wheat or rye), which results in a light-bodied spirit.

The chief flavoring agent in Gin is the highly aromatic blue-green berry of the juniper, a low-slung evergreen bush (genus Juniperus) that is commercially grown in northern Italy, Croatia, the United States and Canada. Additional botanicals can include anise, angelica root, cinnamon, orange peel, coriander, and cassia bark. All Gin makers have their own secret combination of botanicals, the number of which can range from as few as four to as many as 15.
