Roots of Gin in old Malaya
Take this Gin and Tonic Masterclass and learn about the origins of gin!
About the workshop
Did you know that the gin and tonic was created in old Malaya by colonial soldiers to ward against malaria? Very few people know that the ubiquitous combination originated in the jungles of Malaya - This workshop will take you through how necessity created a cocktail and how popularity took the drink very far away from its roots. Finally, we will learn how the modern craft movement bought the drink back to the philosophy of the original drink.
