    Since Old Tom and London Dry styles came about as a not so successful attempt to recreate genever – I say let them experiment! I know Rogue Spirits in Oregon is making a Spruce Tip Gin. Pushing the envelope should be welcomed, not shunned.

  2. Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin has unusual and exotic oriental botanicals from the Ancient Spice Route, including ginger, cumin, spicy cubeb berries from Indonesia and black pepper from India.

    And of course we shouldn’t forget the sublime mediterranean Gin Mare from Spain, with all those great botanicals like basil, thyme, rosemary and olives. Cheers! 🙂
