Burnett's Distilled London Dry Gin
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
Burnett's Gin is a true London distilled dry gin. Spirits and selected botanicals are distilled together to deliver a distinctive flavor, instead of adding flavoring to neutral grain spirits, as with some competitive brands. Gin's origins can be traced back to 17th century Holland, where a Dutch physician named Dr. Sylvius found a more potable way to administer oil of juniper, prescribed for many illnesses, by combining juniper waters and a type of neutral spirit known as aqua vitae. He called it genever, from the French genievre or juniper.
