In 1690 English soldiers returning from the wars against the Dutch in the Mediterranean brought back a drink that become so popular that within sixty years it was being blamed for the rapid degradation of society. This period is being remembered as the Gin Craze and Gin is today referred to as Mothers Ruin.By 1751 the British government decided to act regulating uncontrolled production by imposing a law forcing distillers to become licensed. The production of Gin became organized and branding and making better products was now more important.When buying Gin in the 1700s and 1800s youd be offered a simple choice Hollands Gin or English Gin and English Gin was often given names as Old Tom and Young Tom or named after the distiller or the location as Booths Gin and Warrington Gin. This Old English Gin is made from a 1783 recipe distilling eleven botanicals in Angela the oldest pot still being used in England today.
