Orange peel, both fresh and dried, is a popular gin botanical. Typically, the peel of a Seville orange is used dry and the peel of a sweet orange is used fresh. Often, it is dried peel that’s used in gin, a tradition that may well hark back to the days in which Seville oranges were the only type available.
Orange blossom, other orange hybrids (such as Blood Orange) and entire whole fresh oranges are also used by some gin distilleries, but they are a less common sighting.
