Some fun facts from Private Bartender NYC on the history and origins of Gin
- In Holland, it was produced as a medicine and sold in Chemist shops to treat stomach complaints, gout, and gall stones.
- To improve on the flavor, the Sutch starter using juniper, which had medicinal properties of its own.
- Since distilling laws were lax, anyone could produce English spirits. Sometimes Gin was part of the workers wages and eventually the volume sold surpassed that of beer and ale.
