Where botanicals begin
Gin is a clear distilled spirit that gets its distinct flavour primarily from juniper berries. Other herbs or gin botanicals are often added to further amplify and sophisticate the taste. We can supply all kinds of gin listed below in 1000 litre IBCs, 25,000 litre ISO tanks and HDPE drums of 200-250 litres.
What is Gin?
Gin is a neutral spirit that gets its taste from gin botanicals. These plant-based ingredients release aroma into the spirit, usually in the form of oils. Gin botanicals can include seeds, fruit, roots and herbs. The ingredients of gin differ greatly for all gin types. The best gin therefore relies on individual taste.
What are the different gin types?
Whether you want to market a gin that is ready to bottle, or make your own gin, it is important to first understand what distinguishes gin types from one another. The juniper berries in balance with the gin botanicals are one aspect, but cask ageing and production techniques also play a role.
Sasma supplies gins in large quantities that are ready to bottle. We supply London gin, also known as London dry gin. This gin gets its name by adhering to many strict EU regulations that determine it cannot contain artificial ingredients, cannot have any flavour or colour added after distillation and may contain only a slight amount of sweetener, among many other requirements. The interesting part is that this gin does not need to be made in London.
We also supply gin made with a traditional pot still. Extra Neutral Alcohol or Grain Neutral Spirit (GNS) is combined with approved natural flavourings. The Minimum strength of this composition must be 70% ABV. After the distillation, you may add Ethyl Alcohol. In this pot still case, no colouring or sweetening is permitted.
Gin types vary around the globe: just like London gin has its own definition, so does American gin. We supply American gin, which must contain no less than 40% ABV, with its lead flavour being that of the juniper berry.
We also supply the Dutch cousin of gin, called Genever. This typical Dutch spirit is a distillate of GNS flavoured with juniper, and consists of malt wine and herbal components that are extremely similar to those of gin.
Lastly, we also supply cask ageing gin that is ready to bottle. This gin breaks free of tradition and takes a different approach compared to other gin types. Aged in casks, these add richness and spice along with a smooth texture.
Ready to bottle gins are not the only option. You can also make your own gin by adding natural or approved artificial flavourings to alcohol, without restrictions on sweetening. Distilled gin is another option to make your own gin. Here you redistill neutral alcohol (GNS) with approved artificial flavourings and may add more ethyl alcohol to the composition.
We supply all these gins in alcohol strengths within 40-80%. We also supply base spirits for you to make your own gin.
