Gin & Genever News, Reviews & Resources (49) Top 50 High-End Gin & Genever Brands: A-Z

GIN is a spirit which derives its predominant flavor from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). From its earliest beginnings in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved over the course of a millennium from a humble patent medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Today, the gin category remains firmly established as one of the most popular and widely distributed range of spirits on the planet, and is represented by products of various origins, styles, and flavor profiles that all revolve around juniper as a common theme.

GENEVER (also known as junever, genièvre, jenever, jeniever, peket, Jajem (Amsterdam slang) or in the English-speaking world as Holland gin or Dutch gin), is the juniper-flavored and strongly alcoholic traditional liquor of the Netherlands and Belgium, from which gin evolved. Traditional jenever is still very popular in the Netherlands and Belgium. European Union regulations specify that only liquor made in these two countries, two French provinces and two German federal states can use the name jenever.
