London dry Gin is the world’s most popular Gin style. Despite its name, it's not always from London and can be made anywhere, so long as it contains only natural ingredients.
So what makes it “London”? It must be made from pure grain spirit, with flavour introduced from natural botanicals through re-distillation. London Gin also mustn’t contain colouring or any added ingredients other than water.
Despite being the most common style of Gin around today, the flavours in this category vary wildly–from citrus notes to herbaceous styles and even spicy, peppery flavours in some. The terms London and Dry Gin can be used interchangeably and this is what you’ll find in your glass when ordering a Gin and tonic… well, basically anywhere in the world.
