Glossary of Terms

Gin (also known as Mother's Ruin) is a spirit made from the distillation of ethyl alcohol and juniper berries. Different varieties of gin include Old Tom gin (made with a neutral grain spirit and flavoured with botanicals and sugar syrup), Plymouth gin (similar to London dry gin with a more intense fragrance and fuller bodied flavour), London dry gin (made with botanicals distilled into the gin for a dry, light and aromatic drink) and Holland gin (distilled from malted grain mash for a high aromatic and intense juniper flavour). Dry gin is commonly used in long drinks and cocktails such as martinis and Tom Collins.
