Quick Spirits: Gin | Bartender Atlas

What is Gin?
There are different rules about Gin, depending on where in the world you are, but generally speaking:
– The “predominant” characteristic must be juniper.
– Must be bottled no lower than 37.5% ABV
– Must be made from a re-distillation of spirit with botanicals or a maceration of botanicals in the spirit.
– There are a few different kinds of gin and there are many new companies expanding the definition of what can be called “Gin”.
– London Dry Gin can be made anywhere. The name denotes the style, not a geographical designation.
– Old Tom Gin is generally sweeter
What about Whitley Neill Gin?
Whitley Neill Gin is a handcrafted, premium gin that is inspired by the very best flavours and ingredients from around the world.
At Whitley Neill Gin, they endeavour to expand the flavour profile of gins far beyond the realms of traditional botanicals.
Each of their gins is distilled in handcrafted batches at Whitley Neill’s home in The City of London Distillery – the only distillery located in the heart of The City of London.
Whitley Neill London Dry Gin is made with Cape Goosberry and Baobab Fruit. This works great in a Martini.
