General Description


Contrary to the name, juniper berries aren’t truly berries at all and instead are a cone with unusually fleshy and merged scales which give them their berry-like appearance. They are the female seedcones produced by various species of junipers and these “berries” have a very distinct flavour consisting of piney, resinous and green-fresh citrus notes.



Use Cases


Juniper berries have several uses however the most notable and obvious is the fact that these berries are used in gin, giving it its distinctive flavour. These botanicals can also be used in certain styles of beer and wine to give these drinks a bit of extra depth and complexity.


Juniper berries can also be used in European (particularly Scandinavian) cuisines to impart a sharp, clear flavour, especially to meat dishes.
