Cocktails with Gin

With its specific, pleasant aroma, Gin is perfect for cocktails.  That is why the English call it “the heart of a good cocktail”.

Gin is produced from cereals, using dry distillation method. In the first stage of production, gin has no flavor. Flavor is achieved later with the help of carefully chosen accessories - natural flavors of vegetable origin, among which dominates blueberry then coriander, cumin, cinnamon and dried orange peel.

The most famous in the world is LONDON DRY GIN. It is made from corn, with double distillation. The most famous London dry gins are Beefeater, Gilbey’s and Gordon’s.

Gin is rarely served pure. If you do want to serve it in this way, pre-chill it well and pour into small liqueur glasses. Do not dilute pure gin with water or ice, like whiskey, only with tonic or carbonated lemonade.

Gin is most commonly linked with its most famous cocktail - Martini.
