Interesting facts

The Collins is a classic cocktail that is typically made with a base spirit, most commonly gin, along with lemon juice, sugar and carbonated water. This sour cocktail is served long over ice in a tall, round glass that’s named after the drink itself.

History of the Drink

As a classic cocktail, the Collins has become a popular choice among cocktail enthusiasts and is widely recognized for its refreshing taste. Its origins can be traced back to the Limmer's Inn – a dive bar that was a popular haunt among sporting types during the 19th Century. John Collins, who worked as a bartender at the inn, is credited with creating the cocktail that bears his name. The Limmer's Inn, located on Conduit Street in London was well-known for its gin punch as early as 1814. It’s believed that the Collins cocktail may have evolved from this popular drink of the time.
