Gin gets its
name from the Dutch word for juniper, which is genever.
juniper that sets gin apart from all other types of spirits, as it is juniper
that officially must be the predominant flavour for a spirit to be classified
as gin. Gin, like so
many things was originally produced as a medicine and this along with it’s
pleasing taste made it high in demand.
in popularity during the war, when British soldiers fighting on Dutch land were
aided with “Dutch Courage” by drinking gin. When gin became more popular in the
United Kingdom many produced their own at home as the distillation was so such
a simple process and could be done almost anywhere.
until the 18th century in South America that tonic water also became
known for its medical properties however the taste despite it health benefits
was not pleasant. As a result, British colonies in India started adding gin to the
tonic to improve the taste and add an extra kick and this was the birth of the
Gin & Tonic.
Unlike other spirits the range of botanicals
and spices that can be used to enhance the flavour of Gin is still growing and
for this reason Gin has become the most popular spirit in the United Kingdom.
