HISTORY

This sophisticated cocktail's exact origins are unclear, but one theory is that it evolved from a cocktail created in Martinez, California during the mid-1800s gold rush. A bartender created the ‘Martinez Special’ from gin, vermouth, maraschino liqueur, bitters and lemon for a miner who had struck gold and wanted to celebrate. By 1922, the martini reached its most recognisable form and was a popular drink order during the Roaring Twenties. Over the years, the Martini has gained a reputation as one of the best-known mixed cocktails.
