“The original American spirit”

Gin was the predominant drink in the United States during the Prohibition-era 1920's and many variations were created. "Baththub gin" was developed in response to the poor quality of alcohol that was available at the time; because the 18th amendment specifically prohibited the sale or manufacture of distilled alcohol, producers of gin were forced to use denatured alcohol. By mixing it with other flavorings, such as juniper berries, and allowing the mixture to steep in a tub for several hours or even days, the gin became more drinkable.  However, the process for converting denatured or wood alcohol into consumable form was not always reliable - some batches of "baththub gin"� were genuinely poisonous, and the consumption of wood alcohol often led to blindness or even death.  Producers of "baththub gin" understood how undrinkable thier product would be, so they encouraged bartenders at hidden bars and clubs to create their own recipes for cocktails. Still today, straight gin is not usually served on its own, since it tends to be extremely dry. Gin is often mixed with tonic water, vermouth or fruit juices to make it more palatable.  Upholding tradition, we mix our gin and other spirits with the finest and freshest fruits, juices, syrups and infusions in cocktails inspired by original recipes.  Bathtub Gin has been featured on Taverns, Lounges & Clubs.
