Gin styles you should know. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Gin is an incredible base spirit for cocktails. It’s botanical flavor can add to any drink. Do you know what separates a London Dry from an Old Tom Gin? London Dry is one of the driest gins available, making it preferred in martinis and gin and tonics. Plymouth gin is less dry and distinguishable by its earthy flavor. Plymouth gin is unique in that it is only produced in Plymouth, England. Plymouth is one of the earliest gin distillery hubs dating back to 1793. Old Tom gin is distinct for its dry, malty sweet flavor, and juniper bite. This is the only gin that should go into a Tom Collins.
