Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
"Washington, DC is famous for its cherry blossoms, so it's fitting that the first modern distillery in the District would find a way to use them in a gin. Green Hat's spring and summer seasonal release is a unique take on floral gins, pairing juniper with notes of citrus, stone fruit, and of course, cherry blossoms. Slightly sweeter than Green Hat's classic gin, it's easy to imagine this one in summer cocktails like a Sloe Gin Fizz or in a soft, approachable Martini. "
