Of all clear spirits, none give a singular, distinctive taste like a gin, yet can also offer unlimited variations in flavour and aroma. A grain neutral spirit, fermented and distilled from an agricultural origin, such as wheat, barley, potatoes, is further distilled and flavoured from a recipe of botanicals, the list of which is virtually infinite.
Juniper is of course the predominant botanical in all gin recipes, with additional classic ingredients including the likes of coriander seed, angelica root, dried citrus peel and orris root.
A 'London Dry Gin' references only the production method, not a geographical location, and must be distilled from a high quality grain spirit of agricultural origin. The resultant distillate will be high in alcohol content, and no other flavourings or ingredients, other than water, may now be added. So, as we say at Mounters Gin, "From still to bottle, nothing added".
