Botanical: Cinnamon

Cinnamomum verum a..k.a. CinnamonCinnamon, or botanically speaking Cinnamomum verum is often referred to as “true cinnamon,” though much confusion exists as Cassia is often simply sold as cinnamon in the United States.

So does your gin feature cinnamon or cassia? Although many say that the flavor of true cinnamon is more gentle, I often find the results of both to be readily recognizable as cinnamon.

The spice itself comes from the bark of a tree native to Southeast Asia, and most C. verum on the market today is grown in Sri Lanka, lending “true cinnamon” it’s other market name of “Sri Lankan Cinnamon.”
