England-The spirit is triple distilled, and the alcohol vapors are passed through bundles of the herbs and spices in order to gain flavor and aroma of almond, lemon peel, liquorice, juniper berries, orris root, angelica, coriander, cassia, cubeb, and grains of paradise.
The distinctive, lively character of gin comes from juniper and other botanicals, added to a base of neutral spirits.
Juniper gives gin its strong and refreshing herbal profile, but adding other botanicals allows producers to design an unlimited number of gin flavors. What are botanicals? They’re plant-based flavoring agents such as coriander (spicy), angelica root (earthy), dried citrus peels (fruity), caraway seeds, aniseed, cocoa, almonds, vanilla and many more.
