Interesting facts About Gin
Did you know?
Franciscus Sylvius, a Dutch physician, created Gin, known then, Jenever as medicine during the 16th century. His high-proof concoction was believed to improve circulation and other ailments. During the Dutch Independence War, it was given to soldiers and referred to as “Dutch Courage.”
While the English are famous gin enthusiasts- Gin was actually concocted in Holland! The introduction of Jenever & The British began during the war in the 17th century, and the English brought the spirit back with them. The London-style gin we’re familiar with now would be born 150 years later.
During the 19th century, Brits began to move to India after the Sepoy Rebellion of 1857 and, subsequently, the popularity of Gin & Tonics spiked. In efforts to avoid malaria, the demand for “Indian Tonic Water” grew. Gin was added to the tonic water to soothe the bitter taste.
