History of the drink
When British soldiers stationed in India in the 19th Century were looking for a way to take quinine, a bitter substance that was used to cure malaria, they invented the gin and tonic. Water and gin were combined with quinine to make a revitalising and therapeutic beverage. The cocktail gradually rose in favour among British expats and spread to other parts of the world. Both cocktail connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike still appreciate the G&T in today's world. It’s the ideal beverage for any occasion, whether it’s a summertime BBQ or a night out at a cocktail lounge, thanks to its crisp flavour.
