Gin, the distilled alcoholic drink that is one of the broadest categories of spirits. All of the various origins, styles, and flavour profiles, revolve around juniper as a common ingredient.Gin became popular in Great Britain (particularly in London) when William of Orange became King William III of England.

Gin today is produced in subtly different ways, from a wide range of herbal ingredients, giving rise to a number of distinct styles and brands. After juniper, gin tends to be flavored with botanical and herbal, spice, floral or fruit-flavors or often a combination.
It is most commonly consumed mixed with tonic water.
