Gin sounds so old-fashioned, doesn’t it? It’s so proper and prim-school like. If it had a wardrobe it would be full of pleated skirts and ruffled shirts, lots of tweed and brooches. If gin were a girl she’d come across a little bashful and not quite willing to explore her princess qualities – but if she only knew what was hiding under her petticoat ... She’s a little prudish, but there’s a diva dying for exposure underneath that veil of reservation.

If gin were a literary club, it would be packed with Emily Brontë and Jane Austen bookworms. Gin is for hopeless romantics, clinging to the ideal of Heathcliff waiting out yonder to take them away.

The gin and tonic is a classic drink - so ladylike, so petal-sweet and mildly snobbish. After a starring appearance in the mid-century as an oh-so-stylish martini, gin disappeared for a while. But now this spirit has been ripped away from its mothballs to seduce a whole new generation.
