What are botanicals?

These are the dry or fresh ingredients added to your spirit to produce its flavour. Seeds, berries, roots, fruit, herbs, and spices – collectively known as “botanicals”. Popular botanicals or flavouring agents for gin, aside from the required juniper, often include citrus elements, such as lemon and bitter orange peel. as Additionally, a combination of other spices may include any of the following: anise, angelica root and seed, orris root, liquorice root, cinnamon, almond, savoury, lime peel, grapefruit peel, saffron, frankincense, coriander, grains of paradise, nutmeg, cassia bark or others. The different combinations and concentrations of these botanicals in the distillation process cause the variations in taste among gin products.
