What is London Dry Gin?

London Dry Gin is a special type of gin that originated in London. Unlike other types of gin, it is made using only natural ingredients and no artificial flavors or additives are used. This gives it a pure and dry taste.

History of London Dry Gin

The history of London Dry Gin can be traced back to the 18th century, when gin became increasingly popular in England. During this era, distilleries in the exciting metropolis of London began to develop their own unique style of gin, which is now known and appreciated worldwide as London Dry Gin. The term "London Dry" refers to the traditional production method of this noble drink.

Production of London Dry Gin

The production process for London Dry Gin is not only strictly regulated, but is also of particular importance for the quality and taste of the end product. In order to be allowed to carry the coveted "London Dry" label, certain specifications must be adhered to.

The process begins with the production of a neutral spirit made from high-quality grain or molasses. This base serves as the foundation for the further flavoring of the gin. Carefully selected botanicals are used in the flavoring process, primarily juniper berries, which give the gin its characteristic taste. Coriander, lemon peel and a variety of other spices are also used. The exact recipe varies depending on the manufacturer and is often a well-kept secret.

The botanicals are added to the gin either by maceration or distillation. During maceration, the spices are soaked in the neutral spirit and thus ensure intense aromatization. In distillation, on the other hand, the botanicals are heated together with the neutral spirit and then condensed again, distributing their aromatic substances in the gin. Once the aromatization process is complete, the gin is stored in barrels to give it time to mature and further develop its flavour nuances. The duration of this storage also varies depending on the producer and the desired result. Finally, the gin is carefully bottled and prepared for sale. The entire production process requires a high level of precision and expertise to ensure that the end product meets the high standards associated with the "London Dry" label.

Unlike other types of gin, no sugar or artificial flavorings may be added during the production of London Dry Gin. The addition of colorants is also not permitted. This helps to ensure that the taste of London Dry Gin is particularly pure and dry.

An overview of the botanicals:

In London Dry Gin, the botanicals play the decisive role in aromatization and flavour development.

Here is an overview of some of the most frequently used botanicals:

  1. Juniper berries: As the main ingredient in gin, juniper berries are responsible for the distinctive, slightly resinous flavor.

  2. Coriander seeds: These seeds bring a spicy and slightly citrusy note to the gin.

  3. Angelica root: Angelica root gives the gin an earthy and spicy flavor.

  4. Lemon peel: Fresh lemon peel adds a citrusy freshness to the gin.

  5. Orange peel: Orange peel adds a fruity note to the gin and rounds off the aroma.

  6. Iris root: Iris root serves as a binding agent and helps to unite the different flavors in the gin.

  7. Cubeb pepper: This exotic pepper gives the gin a slight spiciness and a light menthol-like aroma.

  8. Cassia bark: Cassia bark brings warm spicy notes such as cinnamon and cloves to the gin.

  9. Licorice root: Licorice root adds a subtle sweetness to the taste of the gin.

These botanicals are carefully selected to achieve a balanced taste and give the London Dry Gin its unmistakable identity. The combination and dosage of botanicals varies depending on the producer and recipe, which means that each London Dry Gin has its own unique flavor nuance.
