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 of Venus Spirits first gin blend leads with bright, citrusy notes of lemon peel and coriander. Spicy juniper comes in strong on the palate, balanced by more citrus and high floral notes. It strays just far enough from traditional gin recipes to be interesting, avoiding the pitfall of making an out of balance spirit. Soft in mouthfeel, but with the botanical heft to stand up in cocktails, it will play well in recipes calling for an assertive gin."
