Gin is a type of spirit that is made by distilling a neutral spirit, such as vodka, with botanicals, such as juniper berries, coriander, angelica root, and other herbs and spices. The botanicals give gin its distinctive, complex flavor profile. Gin is a versatile spirit that can range in taste from crisp and clean, to bold and herbal. It is often enjoyed neat or on the rocks, and is also a key ingredient in many classic cocktails, such as the Martini and the Gin and Tonic. There are several styles of gin, including London Dry Gin, Old Tom Gin, and Dutch Jenever, each with its own unique flavor profile.
