Juniper is present in Europe up to 2,500 m of altitude but in these regions with very rigid climate it assumes twisted forms. Its taste has given origin to the name of the plant which derives from the Celtic word of Juneprus which means bitter. In the Middle Ages, these false berries had a reputation for miraculous healing and even later on, in the sixteenth century, they were considered a prodigious universal panacea. Today, these berries are used as diuretic and aperitif. They are used to smoke ham and make preserves and stews especially with game. They are also one of the elements used in the preparation of gin.
