Keep Your Gin Up! Gins and Mixers You’ll Love
Gin, an aromatic and easy-to-drink liqueur, is a popular choice for lovers of mixed drinks. With juniper at its heart and a combination of spicy, floral and woody notes, gin can be flavoured with other fruits and botanicals to create unique drinks and cocktails. Later, people added gin, sugar and lime to the tonic and created the world’s first Gin and Tonic.
Here are a few of crowd-favourite gins you should know about:
