We will all remember our Grandparents and parents partaking in a sip of Gin every now and again and it was often accompanied by tonic, it was a well known fact that Gin was an older generation’s drink and for quite sometime, it completely fell out of favor with the general public.
If you go into any trendy, upmarket bar or restaurant now however, gin is plentiful on the drinks menu and many variations it offers too. Gin now comes in many varieties and is no longer the staid drink it used to be. Gin now comes in many cocktail variations including many other varieties using herbs and different flavors including Raspberry, Strawberry and Grapes and and there are many Gin only bar’s springing up to accommodate this new found love and obsession with Gin.
We are definitely in the grip of a Gin- naissance and it shows no sign of slowing down, our love of Gin once again is stronger than ever and this may have something to do with the sheer mass of Gin varieties available. It is once again a cool and trendy drink and great for the long summer evenings.
Gin has now pulled in an audience of young and old with the younger generation from 18 upwards enjoying Gin has their only preference and many establishments stock over 120 varieties of Gin. Gin distilleries have increased with small niche distilleries offering new Gin varieties. They market their products by selling them at the upper end of the market to smaller niche establishments including restaurants and supermarkets. The smaller niche distilleries are doing incredibly well developing several varieties of gin and selling these with great success providing them with a very successful business model.
This new found love of Gin has offered many the chance to start a business distilling Gin or even opening up a bar selling the many varieties of Gin. Many combine the two and have a small niche distillery combined with a bar offering the many varieties they distill. Many businesses are doing incredibly well selling to the higher end shops and by keeping their range small, they can sell at a higher price and therefore create a good following for their products.
