Gin and tonic
Gin and Tonic is a popular cocktail developed by the British East India Company in Asia in the 18th century. Originally, tonic water is a soft drink that contains quinine, used at the time in the fight against malaria in tropical latitudes. This liquid being bitter, the English added sugar and alcohol to make the taste more pleasant. The juniper hints mixed with the bitterness of the tonic made this cocktail popular in every corner of the Empire.
Nowadays, several variants of gin tonic exist. Mixologists and brewers take advantage of the diversity of existing gins to vary the types of tonics and toppings and create exclusive, refreshing and tasty cocktails. At Madame. Smith, we know our gins and our tonics. Our qualified staff knows how to preserve the sparkling of your drink for a memorable tasting experience.
