The Gin Festival hit Sheffield and I was there to sample a fraction of the 100+ bottles of gins from all over the world.  We learnt about the history of gin whilst sampling shots from a range of distilleries.  Gin was in fact a pauper’s drink of choice until a the Gin Act n 1736 made the license to retail gin prohibitively expensive.   I was also amazed to discover people used to drink gin by the pint!!!
