Gin is a distilled alcohol. Traditionally, gin is flavored primarily with juniper berries.
That said, gin has so many varieties and is also had with herbal ingredients, spices, floral ingredients and more. It goes without saying that there are many, many, many brands that have their own distinct styles and flavors. Every one is a little different, which is beautiful and gives us a world of possibilities and mixers.
Gin is one of the most polarizing liquors because some people love it while others hate it. (If you’re someone who hates it, let me suggest trying a different brand or style of gin because there is such a wide variety of flavors.)
