London Dry GinNeutral spirit flavored with juniper and other botanicals. In the US, the minimum ABV is 40%; In the EU, it is 37.5%. Originally, only made in London, this can be made anywhere. No artificial flavors or colors can be added. Only water, neutral grain spirit, and sugar (no more than 0.1g/l) can be added.
"The aroma is much more aromatic with the sweeter notes of coriander and licorice coming in stronger on this lower proof version compared to the 47% ABV. Naturally, it is softer and rounder with the additional water, but the juniper is still the king overall. The higher proof version is also more bitter than this version and shows more cinnamon. Still a solid value, this. Would serve in a Negroni."
