What Is Gin Made From?: Unveiling the Key Ingredients
Gin's flavour profile is shaped by its core ingredients. Understanding the base spirit, essential botanicals, and the role of juniper is key to appreciating the nuances of this beloved spirit.
The Art of Distillation: Understanding the Base Spirit
In gin production, the base spirit is usually grain alcohol, with its quality significantly affecting the final product. Most gins start with neutral grain spirits, allowing the botanicals to shine. However, some artisanal gins use malted barley or other grains to infuse distinct characteristics into the base spirit, resulting in unique flavour profiles.
The Botanical Symphony: Essential Botanicals That Define Gin
Botanicals are the essence of gin, providing its unique flavours. Key botanicals include juniper, which gives gin its resinous notes, coriander for citrusy and spicy hints, citrus peels for brightness, and cardamom for warmth and complexity. Understanding these botanicals helps in appreciating and selecting gins aligned with your taste preferences.
The Influence of Juniper: The Heart and Soul of Gin
Juniper is the soul of gin, with a profound influence on its flavour. Historically, juniper was added to spirits to mask distillation's harshness and later became a defining element of gin. It imparts the signature piney notes that differentiate the spirit from others. Juniper's role varies across gin styles, making it a fascinating aspect to explore for gin enthusiasts.
