Gin is a widely popular spirit known for its distinct flavour, which derives from juniper berries. With a long and fascinating history, gin is so much more than just ‘flavoured vodka’. Unlike many other spirits, gin is almost exclusively consumed in cocktail form. While it is undoubtedly delicious on its own, especially in today's craft spirit climate, traditionally gin has not been a sipping drink.
