All about gin: how many types there are and which are the best

Gin is a distillate made from a fermented grain or potato in which various odors are impregnated. Among these is always juniper, the plant from which the drink takes its name.

Within the beverage industry, gin is primarily associated with the consumption of classic drinks such as Gin Tonic or Gin Fizz, but its use is included in an ever-evolving series of cocktails. The success of this distillate is such that in 2012 Gin Day was established, an Italian event created to celebrate its history and promote its development.
