Production Process

Distilled gin is a juniper-flavoured spirit drink produced by either (a) re-distilling alcohol of agricultural origin in the presence of juniper berries and other natural botanicals (from which the taste of juniper must be predominant), or (b) mixing together the aforementioned distillate with any combination of alcohol of agricultural origin, flavouring substances and flavouring preparations.

If it contains less than 0.1g of sugar per litre of final product, the name distilled gin may be supplemented by the term ‘dry’.

Strength

Distilled gin sold to consumers has a minimum alcoholic strength of 37.5% vol..

Permitted

The addition of colours and sweetening products (the latter being tightly limited if the product is called a ‘dry’ distilled gin).

Not allowed

The simple addition of essences or flavours to alcohol of agricultural origin in ‘gin’ production does not make the spirit a ‘distilled gin’.
