Gin (or juniper vodka) is a strong alcoholic beverage. It is made of distilled wheat alcohol and juniper, which adds a distinctive taste to gin. One should distiguish between gin and sloe gin, a sweet liqueur traditionally made by infusing sloes, the fruit of the blackthorn, in gin. The most common type today is London dry gin, a strong alcoholic beverage, usually made in tower stills with further distillation using some botanicals. In addition to juniper, citrus botanicals such as lemon and bitter orange peel are used, as well as other spices, including anise, angelica root, orris root, cinnamon, coriander, and cassia bark. The given name does not refer to the brand, trademark or the country of origin, rather it refers to the distillation process.
