HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS.

Types of Gin

  • The most common type of gin is London Dry which mixes well.
  • Old Tom Gin is a sweetened gin popular in England in the 18th century. The history of Old Tom is quite interesting. Pubs in England in the 1700’s would have a sign shaped like a black cat mounted on the wall outside. The cat was called Old Tom. After placing a penny in the cats mouth, a shot of gin would come out of a tube under the cat, into the person’s mouth.
  • Plymouth Gin is full bodied, fruity, and aromatic.
  • Genever is a gin from Holland that is distilled from a malted mash and could be aged for up to three years. It’s not used for mixing but is drank straight up chilled.

  • Dry gins primarily come from Great Britain. These are usually used in mixed drinks and are often have a hint of citrus. Spain is a minor producer of Dry Gin which is mixed with Coca Cola. Dry gin is made in a column still.

The Martini

The most famous gin drink. There are many ways to make it and many variations upon this drink. It is James Bonds favourite drink, shaken not stirred.

When making a martini, the type of martini must be determined. Variations include wet, dry, extra dry, and super dry. It can be shaken or stirred.

Always ask your customer how dry they would like their drink. This refers to the amount of dry vermouth in the drink. They will know how much they want.

  • A standard Martini will have ½ ounce of dry vermouth.
  • A dry martini might have 5 drops of dry vermouth.
  • An extra dry one would have a few drops added to the chilled glass (before adding the gin) and then the vermouth poured out, leaving only a tinge of flavour.
  • With a super dry martini you just show the martini glass the bottle and don’t add any.
  • The recipe below has a ½ ounce of dry vermouth added to the mixer the same time as the gin. Should it be a dry or extra dry martini you would ad the vermouth after the gin has been poured into the glass.
