What is gin made of?
Today we will answer the questions of what gin is made of and also how gin is made. What is gin made of? The definition of gin: The general definition of gin is any neutral-based spirit that has juniper as its main botanist, which must maintain a defined minimum ABV (alcohol by volume). The EU has “defined” precisely what is “London Dry Gin”, what kind of residue comes out of it. The following is an overview. The main botanical flavor should be juniper berries. It should use a neutral base spirit (ethanol of agricultural origin) originally distilled above 96% ABV then, it must be re-distilled to at least 70% GVA. It can only be diluted to a minimum intensity of 37.5% in the EU (40% in the US) after distillation. No artificial ingredients. No additional flavor or color can be added after distillation.
What is the difference between gin and vodka?
Gin is any neutral-based spirit like Vodka, but the similarity ends here. Gin then added a number of “botanicals” (described in the previous section) and one of those botanical must be juniper. I guess that’s why you’ve probably seen Strawberry Vodka, Cherry Vodka, Lemon Vodka, but never Juniper Vodka. However, a little Googling will allow you to discover that some smart Alec has “invented” Juniper Vodka, even though the label still says that Gin covers all marketing angles. It’s basically a gin (or vodka) that has no botanical other than juniper.
