Gin is a classic British spirit with 1 in 16 people drinking this beverage every single day, it is pretty obvious us Brits love a good old gin and tonic. With so many different types of gin, as well as limitless amounts of flavours we thought we would dig deep and find out some of the popular premium gin flavours on the market today.
London Dry Gin
Despite the name, London Dry Gin can be made anywhere in the world, it is purely the style of gin which doesn’t need to be distilled in Englands capital.
This is the purest of gin types as it only contains all natural ingredients, high quality alcohol and a very small percentage of sugar. No artificial flavours or additives are added after distillation.
Made in the same way to the London Dry Gin this is another popular gin on the market but artificial flavours, additives and sugars can indeed be added to create the different flavours required.
Sloe gin is actually a liquor rather than an actual gin as it contains a lower ABV of 20-25%, than of the minimum requirement of an actual spirit. Sloe gin is packed full of more sugar and its process to make is a lot simpler than going through the distillation process.
Pink Gin is made in the same way as your regular gins but the only difference is that red fruits and berries are added, such as raspberries, strawberries and redcurrants, to create the pink colouring. This seems to be the country’s most sort after gin among British consumers.
Low or Non-Alcoholic Gin
The latest addition to the list is gin distillers offering a low or non-alcoholic gin for those not caring for a hangover or wanting a healthier option, whilst not having to compromise on the gintastic flavours of the classic juniper berries and botanical ingredients.
Where to start, as let’s face it, there is basically a gin flavour for every mood going. With hundreds of flavours out there on the market and the list forever evolving it is hard to choose, but we have selected our top 10 personal favourite gin flavours which are best enjoyed on a warm summers evening, packed full of ice and a accompanied with a refreshing tonic.
The beauty of different gin flavours within one brand is being able to dress and jazz up your gin bottles with eye-catching gin labels in a multitude of colours to represent each different flavour.
