The botanicals include juniper, coriander, orris root, andlemon peel. This is extraordinarily appealing gin. The old cognac still lends its usual rich delicacy.
The gins we are familiar with are mostly “London Dry”gins, column-still spirits derived from corn, grains, or even sugar beets, flavored with juniper (otherwise it can’t be called gin) and usually other flavoring agents/botanicals, natural or artificial. There are other types of gin, and the spirit has an interesting social history: see the Wikipedia article on gin. Russell Henry uses a wheat-based grain-neutral spirit redistilled on the Germain-Robin 16HL cognac still, and also on a small Holstein potstill, following infusion with juniper and several other aromatics; the ginger version is additionally infused with organic ginger, the lime version with limes and their leaves.
