What type of gin goes best in this recipe?
Without any doubt, Gin is the most versatile and compelling alcoholic beverage and comes in nearly 3500 varieties. Here is a summary of the four basic Gin and their flavor characteristics. You can choose the best Gin according to your palate.
London Dry, as the name suggests – was first crafted in England. But now it is popular worldwide and the most commonly used gin. The most dominant flavor that your taste buds can recognize is the “juniper.” Gin is often steeped with citrus peels before distillation to give it a bold citrusy flavor. That is why most of the cocktails that contain gin are brightened by lime or lemon juice. Gin is not artificially flavored, and if it has a mildly sweet flavor, you can attribute the sweetness to the presence of licorice.
When we talk about flavor, Plymouth is drier than London Dry. The seven main flavoring components of a Plymouth are – dried sweet orange peels, coriander seeds, juniper, cardamom, Angelica root, and Orris root. The presence of roots makes its flavor earthier. Its oily texture makes it suitable for several cocktails, especially those with a bitter kick.
Old Tom was a name given to the gin, which contained additional sweetening elements during the 18th Century. Some manufacturers like Ransom age their Old Tom in wine barrels to give them a caramel color. However, the others, such as Hayman’s, prefer keeping it clear. The manufacturer may add an artificial sweetener or rely upon botanicals to do the job. It goes best in mixed cocktails.
Probably the most original gin, Genever dates back to the 16th century. The flavors rely upon malted grains rather than juniper and other botanicals. That is why it has a robust flavor similar to that of whiskey. Other added flavorings include caraway, cloves, ginger, nutmeg. The citrus flavor is most often absent from a Genever. It goes best in rich cocktails because of its richer flavor. Stir in some bitters or use with sweet vermouth; it will make you feel like a millionaire.
