Gin is a strong alcoholic beverage that is often used in cocktails.

The creation of this drink in the middle of the 17th century is often attributed to the Dutch doctor Franciscus Silvius. From the Netherlands, gin made its way to England. Here, the drink became very popular among the poor population after its unlicensed production was allowed and high duties were imposed on foreign alcohol products. The ingredients for making the drink were often cheap and poor quality, which gave it a bad reputation and led to the enactment of the 'Gin Act'. After the act was passed, only licensed sellers could sell gin. In the 19th century, 'London Dry Gin' was created. It became a more respected drink.

This strong drink is made by distilling grain alcohol with the addition of plant spices such as juniper berry, coriander, angelica, iris root and others. London Dry Gin is usually made in vertical distillers and re-distilled after adding herbs to the spirit base.
