What types of gin are actually out there?

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.

Distilled Gin

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

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

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.

Adding bright colours to display your range of flavours will help your customers choose their favourite tipple and build your brand vision. By simply changing the design colours for each unique flavour will help your consumers differentiate your 'blood orange gin' to your 'strawberry gin' by using orange text over red text, for example.
