Even though the Netherlands is officially considered the inventor country of genever, Great Britain is known as the "motherland of gin." When Dutch and Great British troops fought together on the war front in 1618, they also shared genever with each other. After gin was imported to England, its popularity was almost unstoppable. A proprietary recipe was developed, which gave rise to the name Genever being changed to the Anglo-Saxon name Gin, and so English Gin was born. The first global quality standards were introduced and London Dry Gin was also created. The hype around the unique juniper schnapps was unstoppable. For information on the production, history and categorization of juniper schnapps, see the main category Gin.
Beefeater, Edinburgh Gin's, Bathtub Gin, Bombay SAPPHIRE, Bulldog, Hendrick's, Gin Lane, Tanqueray or Gordon's London Dry Gin - countless well-known brands converge under the term English gin.
