Juniper Berries don't instantly strike you as a spice, but they're almost as versatile as any spice can be. The liquor Gin was developed using Juniper Berries, which is how Gin got it's name (The french for Gin is genivre, and the Dutch for Gin is jenever). Juniper Berries are a little too bitter to eat directly, but when used in cooking they bring out a great sweetness in wild game and other tough meats.

Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season.

About the Freshness of Juniper Berries

Last time I bought juniper berries from Regency Spices, there was a very pleasant and fresh smell like Christmas tree. After a period of time, like weeks, the christmas tree flavor faded and a strong berries smell remained.

However, I wonder why the juniper berries I ordered this time did not have the fresh and crispy Christmas tree flavor but a mature berry smell.

Grateful to have your reply and may be you can tell me more about things of juniper berries.

Many Thanks =))

Hi Daniel!

Thanks for your review and feedback. The juniper berries are highly seasonal product - we import them once a year. Flavours are much stronger at the start of season, and even though we do try our best to store in airtight bags in air-con, some subtleties of the flavour do disappear with time. The aroma usually goes faster, but taste will stay throughout if stored well in airtight bags below 25C. If you crush or use in cooking this way, you should still get the same nice flavour.

Thank you!
