Have you ever wondered how Gin came into being?
Growing up I have heard various stories of how Gin was the favorite drink amongst the soldiers who were in my grandfather’s battalion and how they told stories about their favorite drink. Gin is a spirit that gets its flavor from juniper berries and it was created based on its predecessor drink Jenever, which was the traditional juniper-flavored spirit of Belgium.
Jenever was produced by the distillations of malt wine and the various kinds of herbs were added to subdue the strong flavor. Juniper berries were chosen for the flavoring due to their alleged health effects and how they helped in curing various diseases. This drink was originally sold as a herbal medicine in and around the 16th century.
It was rumored to treat gout, gallstones, stomach problems, and other health issues. By the 1700s, London had over 7,000 shops that only sold this spirit. Alcohol abuse became a major problem for the poor and the streets of UK, especially London were pouring with drunken people. In order to solve this mess, The Gin Act was introduced in 1736, making gin severely expensive. This was a very bad idea, as local riots broke out and the law was openly disregarded and the problem continued.
But in the long run, These changes made the production of gin a more high quality and sophisticated business and many respectable businesses were built. As the gin production process became more refined, this drink evolved a reputation for itself as a more sophisticated balance of delicate flavours and was associated with high end cocktails and luxurious dinners and it is used in a number of mixed drinks including the popular Gin and Tonic, the Pimm’s Cup, the Tom Collins, the White Lady and everyone’s favourite, the classic martini.
Is Gin a healthy alcoholic beverage to consider?
Berries are the powerful superheroes of fruits. Juniper berries, in particular, are the main botanical ingredient in gin, and this also creates its most recognizable flavor. Juniper berries one of the key ingredients in Gin have essential oils, which gives well-made Gin – 90 its smooth texture. This is the same texture that helps fight painful colds, but it’s important to not refrigerate gin because these oils change and the health effects are reduced.
People already know that the antioxidants in fruits and berries can help with healthier-looking skin and incorporate certain portions of both in their meals throughout the day, but most don’t immediately think of these antioxidants in the form of gin or any alcoholic beverage, as our minds have been trained to accept that alcohol is of no good when it comes to health.
Juniper berries are also loaded with the same antioxidants that promote the regeneration of cells within your body, hence keeping your skin glowing and keeping you young. While the gin may help with these benefits, in the long run, it can contribute to feelings of depression and anxiety. However, it is unlikely to suffer due to gin consumption. Keep your drinking under check, having your favorite gin once in a while is completely healthy and has little to no effect on your health.
