The Backstory: How Gin and Tonic Became a Thing

If you’re gonna get down on National Gin and Tonic Day, you gotta know what’s up with this iconic mix. Here’s a quick history hit: The gin and tonic has roots in the 19th century during the British Empire in India. It all started with quinine, an extract from the cinchona tree, which was a game-changer in preventing malaria. British officers started spiking their quinine tonic with water, sugar, lime, and gin to make it taste better, and just like that—the gin and tonic was born. What began as a practical drink to stave off illness eventually evolved into the G&T we vibe with today. These days, the gin and tonic is less about health and more about relaxation and sophistication. And here at The Old G, we’re showing everyone that this drink is for all of us.

Celebrating Both Tradition and Innovation

National Gin and Tonic Day isn’t just a nod to the past; it’s a look to the future. It’s a day for both seasoned gin lovers and newbies to lift a glass to a cocktail that’s simple yet deeply rich in history. From classic gins that hit you with that juniper punch to innovative craft gins bursting with unique botanicals, and from old-school tonics to new-school twists, the ways to enjoy a G&T are endless. This day is all about exploring and appreciating the versatility of the gin and tonic. So gather your crew, and let’s make a worldwide toast to the good times and smooth sips that gin and tonics bring our way.
