Gin’s story starts centuries ago in the monasteries and households of monk-alchemists scattered across Europe. Initially produced for medicinal purposes, the beverage soon gained popularity and spread throughout England, southern Italy, Flanders, and the Netherlands. With its medicinal properties and effervescent flavors, gin quickly became sought after by many communities, eventually becoming one of the most popular spirits consumed worldwide today.
Those who don't like gin may say that it tastes like eating a Christmas candle. It is a divisive spirit, but don't listen to the gin haters without giving it a try. Especially as some of the smoothest and most refined cocktails include gin that makes the drink all the more delicious. The taste of gin can vary depending on the botanicals used and the specific distillation process used to create it. However, most gins do have a distinctive piney, citrusy, and herbal flavor profile due to the presence of juniper berries, which are the dominant botanical in gin. Other botanicals like coriander, citrus peel, and angelica root can also add spicy, floral, or earthy notes to the flavor of gin. In general, gin has a dry and somewhat bitter taste, which makes it a popular base for cocktails like the classic gin and tonic, martini, and negroni. However, the taste of gin can be quite complex and nuanced, and there are many different styles of gin that offer unique flavor profiles.

Finally, garnish the drink with a wedge of lime, squeezing it gently over the surface of the drink to release its citrusy aroma and flavor. Serve and enjoy the refreshing taste of a well-made Gin and Tonic!
