Fielding’s Gin Menu
It is a common misconception that gin is flavored vodka. While the spirits are similar, the ingredients and distilling processes are different.
Gin is (and must be by definition) a grain-based spirit (usually wheat or barley) distilled with juniper. Herbaceous and floral, juniper was first used in Dutch genever as a medicinal spirit that dates back to the 13th century.
Balance characterizes great gin. There are several categories of gins, with a wide range of flavors: citrusy to floral, dry and sweet.

The Gin & Tonic
When the British took governance of India in 1857, they used bitter tasting quinine, extracted from cinchona bark, to ward off malaria. It was made into a tonic by dissolving it in water and adding sugar to sweeten it. Once the nation’s favorite spirit (gin) was added, the Brits were left with a drink that tasted pretty darn good and stopped them getting ill.
