The name ‘gin’ comes from the Dutch word for juniper, ‘genever’. The key botanical used in the manufacture of gin is the juniper berry, which gives gin its characteristic aroma and flavour.  All gin must contain juniper, as, without this critical botanical, the spirit cannot be labelled as gin.

Of course, juniper is one of our all-important botanicals here at Murray & Yeatman, alongside our other, specially selected botanicals, which include: Angelica Root, Cardamon, Orris Root, Cubeb Peppers, Coriander, Cassia, Grains of Paradise, Star Anise, Liquorice, Almonds, Lemon, Limes, Oranges and Saffron.
