Historically Great Britain is considered the homeland of gin, in particular thanks to the traditional London Dry Gin. Old Tom, Plymouth, Distilled and many others: there are many styles and production methods that give rise to gin, and there are no limits to the botanicals that can be used. However, also in Italy in 1555 anItalian alchemist named Alessio Piemontese elaborated a distillate based on juniper berries, which he left us traces in his book of medicinal recipes. All gins, even the most whimsical, must have a clear note of juniper berries and a minimum alcohol content of 37.5%. Gin today represents one of the pillars of modern mixology.
