About our Gin & tonic

A medicinal cocktail: this is the origin of Gin Tonic! Or when drinking saves your life… At the time of the British colonies in India, the soldiers diluted quinine (which was used to prevent malaria) in water and sugar to lessen its bitterness. From there to adding gin, there was only one step… then to creating the emblematic Gin Tonic by chance!
