London Dry Gin
J. Rieger & Co. // Kansas, USA
Rieger's Midwestern Dry Gin was made in consultation with Tom Nichols, former master distiller for Tanqueray. This Midwestern take on the London Dry-style incorporates juniper, coriander, angelica root, licorice root, and orange peel along with a wheat-based neutral spirit. Released in fall 2015.
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.
"This American-made London Dry Gin opens with a punchy juniper and earthy coriander burst; add a tangy licorice-like quality and moderate citrus that leads to a clean finish and a lingering zing and we've got a New World gin with old world sophistication."
