Flashcards in STAPLE GIN Deck (12):
Different styles of gin
OLD TOM GIN: sweeter kind of gin made with sweeter malts or botanicals
-NAVY STRENGTH (around 57% alcohol)
LONDON DRY GIN: the world's most popular gin type, is rarely made in London. Dry only in the sense that it lacks sugar to make it sweet. London dry gins tend to be high in alcohol — 90 proof (45 percent alcohol by volume, or ABV) — with a characteristic citrus flavor and aroma due to the widespread addition of dried lemon and/or orange peels to the botanical recipe
Genever is a predecessor to the style of gin that we know as London Dry Gin. Traditionally the base of Genever had a high percentage of Malt Wine (15%-50%), resulting in a spirit that had similar weight on the palate and malty notes like whiskey, and an herbal component that is common with gin.
