The female seed cone or "berries" of the Juniper evergreen shrub native to Northern and Central Europe. Round, deep purple fruit is a source of the signature flavouring in gin as well as a culinary spice adding a bitter spice. Used by the First Nations of the Canadian Martimes as a tonic and to treat tuberculosis although today its most commonly used as an antiseptic and diuretic to treat urinary tract infections.
