What is a good gin?

The characteristics of a good gin

Admittedly, there are several ways to distinguish a good gin from a bad one:

  1.  Ingredients: High-quality ingredients such as juniper berries, herbs and spices are important. Because a bad gin may contain artificial flavours and additives.
  2. Distillation process:  Distillers pay attention to every detail of the process. A bad gin can be carelessly distilled. Which can result in an unpleasant taste.
  3. Quality of taste: A balanced and refined flavour is primordial. Where the different herbs and spices come into their own. A bad gin can have a sharp or artificial flavour.
  4. Labelling: Clear information about the ingredients used is a mark of quality. A bad gin may have vague or misleading information on the label.
  5. Reputation: Do some research on the brand and its reputation. Therefore, you can look at reviews to get an idea of the quality of the gin.
