Happy International Gin & Tonic Day!
Since 2010, people around the world have celebrated International Gin & Tonic day on October 19th. Our new article celebrates everything G&T including the fascinating history behind the infamous drink as well as some of our top picks for gin glasses!
Read it below!
The Gin & Tonic was created back in the 19th century by the Presidency armies, the military force of the East India Company. While stationed in the India subcontinent, malaria became a problem for the European soldiers, so as a preventative cure they were instructed to drink quinine with tonic water. This mixture however had a bitter and unpleasant taste.
To make the drink more palatable, the officers began to add a mixture of water, sugar, lime, and gin to the quinine and tonic – and thus the Gin and Tonic cocktail was born!
Our Favourite Gin Glasses
While Gin and Tonics have in the past been traditionally served in a highball glass or rocks glass, Gin Goblets and Gin Balloon have quickly become a new favourite among drinkers around the world. The large glasses provide ample space for the ice, tonic, and gin, as well as give a more aesthetically pleasing presentation.
Here are our top picks for gin and tonic glasses! (Click to order)
