Fine selection of high quality gins to match the cigar
The roots of gin, which historically has already traveled around the world and was invented by a German-born doctor, lie in the Netherlands. It experienced its great rise in England, when it was enjoyed as a well-known mixed drink of British soldiers in the form of gin and tonic in India. In the meantime, gin is one of the most popular clear spirits worldwide and has a minimum alcohol content of 37.5% by volume. Typical for all gins are the subtle to intense juniper notes paired with aromas of other so-called botanicals such as coriander, ginger and notes of citrus fruits. Due to its variety of flavors as well as its tendency to be high in alcohol, gin is rarely drunk neat, and is therefore found in many well-known cocktails and long drinks. The alcohol used in gin production is distilled from starchy grains such as barley and rye. The addition of selected herbs and spices during distillation gives the gin its characteristic flavor. Meanwhile, well over 100 different ingredients are used for the production of gins.
