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.
"Lock Keeper Gin brings out the fruitier, rather than the earthy or woody, aspects of the juniper berry. Juniper takes the lead on this gin, with lesser citrus notes coming through on the finish and a bit of grain on the aroma. It's an assertive gin, suitable for standing up drinks like the Gin and Tonic."
