The first are gins which add a “signature botanical” after distillation, often through maceration or other means. These gins often have a color or hue from the added ingredients. The second kind of flavored gin is a contemporary style which refers to its predominant note as its flavor. We often categorize the latter type as a contemporary gin; however, depending on process it may be listed as both.

Flavored Gins are also all over 30% ABV (often 40% ABV and up) and contain limited additional sweetening.
