The temperature at which a liquid freezes depends on its chemical composition and environmental pressure.
Gin is an alcoholic beverage consisting mainly of ethanol and water. The freezing point of ethanol is -114°C, while that of water is 0°C at 1 atm of pressure.
As mentioned above, gin, which has an ethanol concentration of 37-40%, so it freezes at a temperature close to -15°C due to its composition.
