Ginerations ago British explorers made the Gin-Tonic into what it is today.
In the eighteen-hundreds they sailed beyond the edges of the map searching for new worlds. Their journeys could last years. Spending long months at sea, burned by the sun and drenched by the waves, they craved refreshment. Unfortunately for the explorers on board drinks such as ale expired too quickly, and whiskey or cognac were too expensive. So they began to bring a more common drink on board, one that could survive the elements during their travels: Gin. A sharp, strong drink originating from The Netherlands. To balance the strong flavor the sailors added tonic. Chosen because it contained “quinine”, the only known antidote to malaria. Finally, they added slices of oranges and lemons filled with vitamins to prevent scurvy.
And so a drink was created for it’s practical, medicinal properties but it quickly spread around the world because, quite simply, it tasted great! Ginerations later, we’ve created a gin which draws on these centuries of tradition to create a refreshing, adventurous drink which you can now enjoy today
