Skin Gin // Germany
Skin Gin is a German made gin featuring a blend of 7 botanicals, each of which has been individually distilled and then blended. The botanicals used in addition to juniper are coriander from Vietnam, mint from Morocco, as well as 4 different citrus fruit -- lime, orange, lemon, and grapefruit peel. The gin is sold in square bottles with different "skins" or colors, most notably in a reptile brown skin. Sold in 500ml sized bottles. Not available in the US.
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.
