Just three fruits and three spices, collectively known as botanicals, are all that are deemed essential to the flavor of No.3 London Dry Gin. Juniper, from Italy, gives gin not only its name, but also the unmistakable gin taste of pine and lavender. Sweet Spanish orange peel provides freshness in the form of clean, crisp citrus. Grapefruit peel gives an extra zingy lift. Angelica root delivers an earthy quality and helps to keep the gin dry. Moroccan coriander seed releases a lemon flavor and a spicy, slightly peppery finish. And finally, cardamom pods add a spicy, aromatic, yet warm bite.
