Read full description of the books:



Have you ever wondered why London has been the location of choice for so many gin distilleries, right up to the present day? Or why some gin made in other countries is known as London Dry Gin? This spirited book will reveal why London has been so important to gin makers for centuries and why, in the Eighteenth Century, the popular drink sparked riots.



At the time, Parliament believed gin was so central to the nation’s problems with alcohol and vice that it passed five different Acts. Even now, you’re not allowed to distil your own gin.



This book isn’t just a history of gin in London and the London style of gin but contains often startling facts about the recently revived favourite. London gins are proving a tonic to the drinks’ market!
