The Loopuyt Dry Gin label looks like a Cold War propaganda poster and its name reads like a Swiftian satire, but it drinks like a beautiful, fruit-forward classic dry Gin. 
 
Loopuyt sounds like a fictional island from Gulliver’s Travels, but it turns out that this is a real place. Loopuyt was a town in Holland, and there was an actual distillery named Loopuyt founded there in 1772. The town changed its name, and the old distillery was closed long ago. But if Loopuyt WAS an island nation in a Jonathan Swift novel, it would be populated by tiny Gin-loving happy Dutch people and master distiller Jaco van der Leun would be their king. 
 
Jaco revived the old-world brand as P. Loopuyt & Co in 2013 and started distilling their 1772 Dry Gin—named in honor of the founding of that first distillery in the tiny Dutch town with the odd name. 
 
Loopuyt Dry Gin has a label that looks like it was created by a Soviet politburo. The letters have all the sharp edges and stark colors of a Cold War propaganda poster. But it does look pretty cool and almost forbidden, in a way. So let’s go with that. Inside the bottle is a really solid Classic Dry Gin, with a “cool fruit” essence that is slick as well. 
 
We like it when a distiller tells you what’s inside. Just feels honest, right? And Loopuyt does that. Juniper is there—of course—but the magic is always in the rest of it. In this case you get lavender, orange and grapefruit zest, cinchona, nutmeg, fresh raspberry, cardamon, coriander, and an interesting mix of mulberries, Incan berries (cape gooseberries), and goji berries. What do you get? A fresh-tasting, balanced, “cool” Gin that marries great with tonic. Prost!

While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
