Juniper Berries ( Juniperus communis )

Product Description

What are dried Juniper Berries used For?

It’s no secret that juniper berries are an essential part of a big business these days, Gin production. These little purply blue wonders have a host of applications, from culinary seasoning to aromatherapy. In particular, the rise of the artisan gin industry has seen the demand for dried juniper berries soar, and Joseph Flach & Sons have risen to meet that demand.

Juniper and cuisine

A true staple of European cuisine, juniper berries have been used for centuries to put a bit of fire in our bellies. In fact, they’re not a ‘berry’ at all – they’re a spice! From seasoning meats to mixing into stocks, stews, pickles and marinades, juniper berries are everywhere. The sharp, distinctive flavour can liven up almost any dish.

Juniper & Gin

Juniper berries are most closely associated with the distilling of gin. The word ‘gin’ is said to originate from the Dutch word jenever, which, quite unsurprisingly, means ‘juniper’. The berries are what gives the drink its trademark flavour. With exciting new craft distilleries popping up every year, the demand for juniper berries has never been higher.
