The history of Gin
Gin is an alcoholic drink which comes from Holland. To be more precise, Gin is a spirit, as the alcohol is obtained after distillation.
Gin appears to be one of the first spirits produced In Europe. It was first produced in the 17th Century. Originally, Gin was called Jenever which evolved to become Juniper; an alcohol considered to be the ancestor of Gin. So, Gin has its roots in both these words. It was mainly consumed in Holland and Belgium. Jenever, Juniper and Gin have one point in common, they are all made with Juniper berries.
Gin may have been first produced by a doctor called Franciscus Slyvius. The main Gin producing countries are Holland and England. The English were the main buyers of Dutch Jenever. This spirit was very popular in England, so it is logical that the first Gin distilleries developed in England after the Dutch ones.
The origin of this alcohol allows 2 great varieties of Gin to be distinguished:
- Juniper (Dutch or Belgian Gin): Juniper is an alcohol produced by the distillation of fermented rye flour and cornflour, redistilled after adding herbs: essentially juniper berries but also coriander, fennel, cumin, liquorice, aniseed, orange peel, almonds, fresh fruit, etc.
- London Dry Gin (English Gin): The London Dry Gin does not denote the origin of the Gin; it is more a consequence of the English regulations. In fact, English distillers do not have the right to distillate the basic grain alcohol, necessary ingredient of Gin production. They buy the rye flour and cornflour alcohol, then elaborate the Gin either by distilling the alcohol with herbs including the juniper, or by mixing the base with an alcoholate of herbs and distilled water.
Juniper can be differentiated from London Dry Gin by its more pronounced flavour. Juniper has more character than London Dry Gin which is easier to use in cocktails. London Dry Gin is more commonly drunk by the public.
Gin is a spirit which is rarely vintage.
Gin became more popular through the centuries in several European countries and throughout the world. Many countries produce Gin, notably Belgium, France, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Germany or Switzerland. There are also Gin distilleries in Spain, particularly in the Balearic Islands. Minorca was once occupied by England who produced this famous alcohol there.
Outside of Europe, the United States and Japan are also part of the principal Gin productors. Once again, the presence of the English helped contribute to the production of Gin. A large number of western countries consume Gin.
In this reference list of the best Gins, you can find Gins from all over the world.
