Cassia is a relative of the true cinnamon of Sri Lanka and is often mis-sold as “cinnamon” in North America.

While cassia bark emits a fiery scent, it’s a little sweeter than cinnamon. Gin makers use both spices quite commonly, though they are used sparingly. As a botanical it lends a complex base note and a certain feeling of familiarity. Its hot and spicy smell conjures up images of exotic markets and far-flung destinations, but it has an earthy tone and a sweet finish, reminiscent of liquorice. Typically, the flavor is more noticeable towards the finish when tasting gin, as opposed to on the aroma.
