Gin and Tapas Masterclass in Cambridge

Gin is on the rebound. Many bars stock now many varieties and one of our local pubs even list over 50! So where has this sudden craze come from? Although Gin is seen as a ‘typical’ English drink, it was first introduced by William of Orange. His favourite drink was Jenever, which was the inspiration for Gin. After James Bond promoted Vodka for his ‘shaken not stirred’ Martini, Gin became less popular. This all changed just after the millennium. We have the Spanish to thank for this! They love Gin & Tonic, especially after a meal.

Gin And Unexpected Flavours

Gin and Vodka are dry close friends. Many might not know, that Gin is made from a type of Vodka by adding juniper berries. Gin has evolved over the course of the years from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Gin was developed on the basis of the old Jenever and became widely popular in Great Britain when William of Orange, leader of the Dutch Republic, occupied the British throne with his wife Mary.
