Empirical Gin & Tonic

Empirical Dry Gin

The Empirical Gin & Tonic, a traditional high ball cocktail, features the Jack Rudy Tonic Syrup and PostModern Spirits navy strength Empirical Dry Gin. With its origins from the army of the British East India Company, the gin & tonic was an early anti-malarial treatment. Quinine had been known as a treatment for malaria. To help offset the astringency of quinine, the British officers began adding lime, sugar and gin to the quinine and thus the gin & tonic was born.
