close up of juniper berry

Juniper used to be a fairly common plant of the British countryside, but has been in sharp decline in modern times. Its dark blue seed-cones, or berries, can be used as flavouring for foods, but its most famous use is flavouring gin. The word gin is derived from the French word for juniper berry.
