Gin, which is short for the older English word genever, is a spirit predominantly made from juniper berries. It derives from the French word genièvre, the Dutch word jenever, and the Latin word juniperus – all meaning juniper as well. Gin was originally used during the span of a millennium as an herbal medicine before it became an item in the spirits category. The spirit originally became popular by William of Orange, the leader of the Dutch Republic in Great Britain, when his wife and he occupied the Irish, Scottish, and English thrones. It is to be considered one of the broadest categories of spirits because of its various styles, origins, and flavor profiles; all of them still revolving around juniper and the main ingredient. The most common styles of this spirit are distilled and London. Distilled gin is lower in ABV percentage and has a stronger juniper berry taste. London gin, also known as dry, contains less sugar and typically ranges from a 70% to 100% ABV during distillation. It receives its flavor from a double distillation process.
