Classic Gins

Classic gins are those that follow the tradition and style of the oldest and most recognized gins. These gins typically have a balanced, herbal, and dry flavor profile, with a focus on traditional gin flavors.

How are classic gins made?

Classic gins are made through the distillation process of neutral alcohol together with a combination of botanicals, with juniper being the main ingredient. During distillation, botanicals, which can include coriander, angelica root, cardamom, and others, are added to the still along with the alcohol. The heat releases the essential oils and aromatic compounds from the botanicals, which mix with the base alcohol, thus creating the characteristic flavor of gin. Juniper provides the distinctive, herbal flavor that defines these gins. Once distilled, the gin is diluted to the desired alcohol content and bottled.
