10 Melhores Gins do Mundo

10 Best Gins of the World
Gin or gim is a liquor distilled from cereals and juniper. It is considered a very strong drink, with an alcohol content greater than whiskey. It originated in the Netherlands in the seventeenth century.

10. ANCHOR JUNÍPERO

Anchor of San Francisco's gin may have a kick like a mule, but that doesn't stop the herby flavour of this tipple jumping out at you.

9. HENDRICK'S GIN

As well as the traditional juniper infusion, Hendrick's uses a dash of Bulgarian Rose and a maceration of cucumber to give its drink a refreshing vegetable taste.

8. SIPSMITH LONDON DRY

The first distillery to open in London for 100 years, Sipsmith use English Barley spirit, 10 herb botanicals and water from Lydwell spring to produce its zesty, citrus-rich dry gin.

7. WILLIAMS CHASE

Possibly the most complicated gin in the world. Each batch of Chase starts life as an apple vodka and is then distilled 100 times more to give a light, airy drink with a slight hint of apple sweetness.

6. G'VINE NOUAISON

It's not only brandy that's made in the Cognac region of France, they also make a silky smooth gin teeming with flavours of cinnamon and lemon. A very sophisticated tipple.

5. LEOPOLD'S AMERICAN

Leopold's master distiller, Todd Leopold, handcrafts every batch of this subtle-tasting gin in small 40-gallon copper stills at his distillery in Denver, even hand numbering the bottles. Deliciously limey.

4. COWEN SLOE

Fragrant, herby and with a distinct currant flavour, Cowen's low-alcohol Sloe gin (26 per cent) makes a delicious aperitif or a sweet-tasting long drink if mixed with tonic.

3. EDGERTON PINK DRY

Add a bit of colour to your Martini with Edgerton's pink gin. Despite its colour, it doesn't contain any bitters, instead getting its distinctive hue and flavour from a pomegranate infusion.

2. XORIGUER

One of the happy leftovers of the 18th Century British occupation of Minorca, the Xoriguer distillery continues to makes small-batch gin from distilled wine, rather than coarse grain distillate. Delicate and refined.

1. HOXTON

Hoxton Gin is made by trendy east-London brewer Gerry Calabrese who adds distillates of tarragon, iris, grapefruit and, unusually, coconut to give a fruity, tropically-flavoured drink.
