Flashback to 1730s London and the British capital was in the midst of its aptly nicknamed ‘Gin Craze’, a phenomenon due in large part to the Government’s high taxes on imported spirits and simultaneous lift on the ban for unlicensed gin production. Gin soon became the drink of choice, with allegedly over half of London’s drinking establishments devoted to home-distilled versions of the Dutch spirit and sophisticated Gin Palaces popping up all over the city.
Today, gin has officially made its comeback, with the traditional G&T (Gin and Tonic) once again a standard order at the bar and many of London’s historic gin palaces enticing a modern crowd of gin enthusiasts. Whether you like yours served up on ice with a wedge of lime or ‘shaken but not stirred’ in a James Bond-style Martini, there are plenty of places to enjoy gin in London.
