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.
"The aroma is quite sweet and floral with orange notes, but it doesn't dial into the potpourri territory. It's more fresh than dried floral notes. The gin is oily and moderately sweet tasting with those same flavors on the palate as the nose. Not terribly complex, but delivers what is promised. "
