Back in the 17th century,
when England and the Netherlands were competing for supremacy in East Asia,
many expatriates posted to the Asian region were dying of malaria.
Various medicines were tried,
and “quinine”, an ingredient in the bark of the kina tree,
was found to be effective against malaria.
However, it was very bitter, and the locals drank it using a mixture of sugar,
soda water, and Geneva (a medical drink that was widely used then).
This is said to be the origin of today’s gin and tonic.
Craft Gin is a distilled spirit called “GIN”
made from local herbs and spices,
