SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): TOM GRUMMETT, GIN EXPERT: 
So London Dry Gin doesnt actually have to made in London. London Dry Gin can be made anywhere in the world. Its simply a type of gin. Its sort of gin was made famous in London during the 1750s. So the style of gin itself, it only has to be made in one big distillation so nothing else can be added after its being distilled. It has to be bottled at least 37.5%, and other than that, it has a main main flavour of juniper. So, its always associate with the strong juniper flavour that you know the gin for. But there are many other styles of gin. London Dry is just one of those styles.’
