The Gin is In: a reference for gins and their botanicals

Postby Hallorann » Tue Jul 10, 2018 10:33 am

Hmm I am just now discovering this site: The Gin is In ...another reminder to myself of how long I've been out of the loop :yawn: :lol:
The site is the creation of Aaron Knoll, author of two books on the subject.

In particular, on the botanicals page they catalog botanicals used and in what amounts by various brands: https://theginisin.com/botanicals ... click any botanical to see relevant gins.

Pardon my post if this site was mentioned previously; I didn't see it in any of my searches here.

Slainte!

oops, I hemmed and/or hawed over this going into Resources/Reviews vs Recipe Development but I was thinking more along the lines of usage of botanicals specifically, so I thought...recipes? my bad! :D

thx for the fixup, mods!

yeah, right, Sumac?? Interesting stuff. One of our many local distilleries taking a riff on classic dry gin is using local wild sage and bay laurel: http://www.stgeorgespirits.com/spirits/ ... erroir-gin

So I guess it figures...if you have a local aromatic, try it out
