1897 Quinine Gin 70cl
1897 Quinine Gin's name comes from the year 1897, when Cinchona Bark, from which Quinine is produced was at the height of mass-production in the Dutch Colony of Java. In the same year, Sir Ronald Ross an indian-born British Medical Doctor discovered that the malaria parasite was transmitted by female mosquitoes. This discovery paved the way for preventative measures which would save millions of lives, and win Ross the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.
It contains 13 traditional botanticals, of which 10 including Juniper, Coriander, Angelica, Orange, Lemon, Nutmeg, Cassia, Cinnamon, Orris and Liquorice are distilled in a copper pot still. To this base, vacuum-distilled Cinchona Bark, Pink and White Grapefruit and Lemon PeelsRead more...
are added to give a superbly complex, citrusy lift to the finished gin.
Despite a dramatic decline in malaria, one child still dies from the disease every minute. For every bottle of 1897 Quinine Gin sold £5 will be donated to Malaria No More UK to help realise the vision of a malaria-free world. This is enough to buy, deliver and hang a mosquito net for a family living at risk from malaria in Africa - protecting their children whilst they sleep.
