Gin is a hit. The number of new brands for this amazingly popular drink increases incessantly. Yet no type of gin is like another, a fact that is truer today than ever before. As gin producers can use more aromatizing ingredients than any other distillers, the variety of flavours exceeds that of other spirits by far. This book presents the history of gin and its various types, describes the most important aromatizing botanicals, and explains gin production step by step. The main focus of the book is to provide an overview of more than 200 gin brands, including variations and all relevant information: brand owner, producer, specific particularities, and description of the taste profile. The aroma of each gin is illustrated with the help of an aroma wheel. Of course we also learn how to adequately taste gin, what to be mindful of when selecting a tonic water, and what types of cocktails or long drinks can be prepared with the »world's most thrilling spirit«.
