    We call a type of gyn as London gin cause it's only made in London
    So by using same strategy in fabrication you can have your own London gyn

    You've got it backward. flavored vodka can be considered a type of gin.
    Also, what others have said about Genever.

  • Christopher Carlsson posted 2 years ago

    Geneva my not be a style of gin but it is certainly a type.
    And to say it is not a traditional gin? Hello?
    It predates all other ( mostly English) styles/types of gin.
    I'd call it a trick question at best...

    and what qualifies as 'many' - more than 3? :)

    just FYI, according to CFR title 27, section 5.22, the American definition of VODKA is " neutral spirits so distilled, or so treated after distillation with CHARCOAL or other materials, as to be without distinctive character, aroma, taste, or color"
    ...and GIN as "a product obtained by original distillation from mash, or by redistillation of distilled spirits, or by mixing neutral spirits, with or over juniper berries and other aromatics, or with or over extracts derived from infusions, percolations, or maceration of such materials, and includes mixtures of gin and neutral spirits. It shall derive its main characteristic flavor from juniper berries and be bottled at not less than 80° proof. Gin produced exclusively by original distillation or by redistillation may be further designated as “distilled”.
    Further, “Dry gin” (London dry gin), “Geneva gin” (Hollands gin), and “Old Tom gin” (Tom gin) are types of gin known under such designations.

    anyway, since gin is not treated to be without distinctive character, aroma, taste, or color, it can't be classified as a flavored vodka.

    I understand artistic license and the frivolousness of these quizzes but get some of the fact right, please.

    I think whoever wrote this quiz should probably do a bit more (or maybe any amount) of research... Genever is 100% a legally defined style of gin. Using a very, very, loosely (not leagally defined) definition of style, every answer provided is correct. Barrel aged, most certainly not a legal style. That's not say a legal style of gin couldn't be aged.

    Agreeing with Brian, not all gins are made by infusion. With the explanation the quiz gave, general American whiskey would also be a type of flavored vodka. (Lol it's not).

    I love when "knowledge tests" get stuff wrong. Nice job Liquor.com.

  • brian.gumbert posted 2 years ago

    not all gins are infusions so therefore not ALL gins are flavored vodkas.

  • mt34 posted 2 years ago

    Genever is a style of gin.
