What is the difference between gin and vodka?

The simple explanatation is that gin is a flavoured vodka.  To be vodka, the spirit needs to be clear and flavourless so that it does not add any flavour to the drink.  Even though it is neutral, it is still one of the most popular spirits in the world - particulary in Russia!  The name vodka comes from the Russian word for water. Vodka, and gin for that matter, can be made from just about anything...wheat, sorghum, grapes, carrots, corn, potatoes...

Gin is distinguished by juniper flavour and any mix of herbs and spices.  In the case of this Mad Millie Gin Kit, this is considered a "compounded gin" whereby a neutral base spirit is mixed with juniper berries and other aromatics.  A London Dry style gin is without any sweetness.  Gin originated in Holland where it was used as medicinal spirit.  The English adopted it with a vengence and hence the name "Dutch courage"!

The Mad Millie Gin Kit is packed in New Zealand from imported and local components.

Title : Looks promising - eager to get started
Comment : just given as an early Christmas present so we can have some Christmas cheer ready, unfortunately someone packing forgot to put in the magic ingredients. No Juniper = no gin, just vodka. When I get my botanicals, I will give a report. Also, do you supply refills?
