A colorless spirit produced by distilling grains like barley, corn, rye etc. with juniper berries and other botanicals such as: coriander, angelica, herbs and spices.

In Holland, distillers make a similar spirit called Genever. It’s from a mixture containing malted barley, wheat, corn, and rye. It produces a fuller bodied spirit similar to malt whisky. Highly aromatic juniper berries are necessary as flavoring agents for both gin and Genever. Other botanicals used include: anise, cinnamon, lemon peel, orange peel, coriander, cassia bark etc. Most distillers have their own unique combination of botanicals which they maintain as a trade secret.
