Gin as a spirit drink, originated in the Middle Ages, its distinctive flavour comes from juniper berries. Originally though, gin was not a spirit drink to enjoy but a herbal medicine. Since then, the drink has become one of the key elements of the international spirit making industry. The predecessor of gin so to say was a drink known as Jenever. Although gin is now a traditional English drink, it wasn’t at the start. Gin was brought to England by William of Orange, leader of the Dutch Republic who occupied the English and Scottish thrones. Nowadays a variety of juniper based variations of the drink can be found, not all of them are classified and considered as gin though.
