Gin has become one of the most necessary beverage for cocktail lovers. In fact, it is the third most consumed distillate in Spain.
It was created in the 17th century by Lucas Bols in Amsterdam (Holland) as a beverage to cure different affections such as stomach pains, gout, etc. Bols named it “Acqua Imperius”.
It was a drink widely consumed among Dutch army members. So much, that it ended up reaching to England.
During the 18th century, it was used to improve the quinine flavor, a component used to cure malaria. It became so popular in England at the time that it caused a massive alcoholism among the population.
Gin arrived in Spain in the same century with the invasion of Mahón (Balearic Islands) by the British army.
