Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). From its earliest beginnings in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved over the course of a millennium from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Today, the gin category is one of the most popular and widely distributed range of spirits, and is represented by products of various origins, styles, and flavor profiles that all revolve around juniper as a common ingredient.
The chief flavouring agent in gin, known as juniper berry is commercially grown in Croatia, northern Italy, the United States and Canada. Gin is a spirit made totally from 100 percent neutral spirit and flavoured with a juniper dominated set of botanicals.
