Our gin range features some of the finest spirits available, with London Dry Gins, sloe gins, flavoured gins, gin liqueors and ready to drink cans available at ALDI.
Gin is an alcoholic spirit which derives its predominant taste from juniper berries. Gin is produced by creating or sourcing a neutral spirit (similar to vodka) as a base and re-distilling it in a pot still with the juniper berries and other botanicals. Traditionally, these other botanicals include coriander seed, a root (such as angelica root, orris root and licorice root), citrus elements (like lemon peel, lime peel, grapefruit peel and bitter oranges) and herbs and spices (such as anise, cubeb, bramble, saffron, baobab, frankincense, grains of paradise, nutmeg, cassia bark, and peppercorn amongst others).
There are various different styles of gin, such as London Dry Gin, flavoured gin, gin liqueur, distilled gins, Genever and Old Tom - each with their own flavours and appearance, although the vast majority of gins available, such as London Dry, are juniper-forward.
After growing in popularity from the late 17th century onwards, gin is now one of the most popular spirits in the world. Gin-based drinks such as the martini, negroni, Tom Collins and gin fizz are some of the most famous cocktails in the world, and just imagine a summer without the classic gin and tonic? The iconic mixed drink of gin and quinine tonic water poured into an ice-filled glass and with a garnish of a wedge of fresh lime (lemon, cucumber, raspberry, a sprig of rosemary, or other ingredients can also be used) is a refreshing favourite.
