The Barrels have been used for three years for Sauterne before Gin was filled in. The Gin was situated for 12 months in the barrels made of French oak.
The spirit made of juniper has not always been called Gin. In the 16th century a Dutch professor Sylvius de Bouve invented a medicine called “Genever”. Presumably the name came from the French word for juniper (Genièvre).
The Genever developed from a medicine to a favored spirit. Especially the English people came to enjoy it and gave the spirit the name we know today “Gin”.
He gets his characteristic flavor from the aromatization with spices like juniper and coriander. Depending on the manufacture the Gin differs in more constituent parts and taste.
The Gin gets his aroma during distillation in which the steam is guided directly over the spices or the spices are mixed with the mash. The spirit has at least 37.5% vol alcoholic strength. It has to be said that the spirit from better fillings definitively have a higher alcoholic strength to get the taste harmonious. Gin with an alcoholic strength of 40-47 % vol is mostly preferred.
