Non-alcoholic gin – 100% flavor, 0% alcohol

Gin – the star in the spirit heaven

In the ranking of the most popular spirits, gin has now secured a permanent place in the upper echelons. In countless variations and compositions it has now become an integral part of the colorful world of drinks. The prominent and characteristic taste is juniper, which can be enriched and refined with other herbal ingredients, also known as botanicals, depending on the brand and taste. These can include citrus fruits, spices or herbs. There are no limits to your imagination, you can use whatever tastes good. And non-alcoholic gin alternatives are also becoming increasingly popular. And the best thing about it: These are very easy to make yourself.

Non-alcoholic gin – 100% flavor, 0% alcohol

When it comes to producing an alcohol-free gin, passionate taste tinkerers get their money's worth. Botanicals can be freely varied and, depending on their composition, very different flavor nuances are created. The only important thing to know is that the result may taste a bit “unusual” for some people at the first sip. This is because flavor carriers such as alcohol or sugar, which are added to the usual products in the supermarket, are missing. That's why it makes sense to always enjoy the homemade, alcohol-free gin alternative in combination with something sugary, for example the typical gin tonic water.
