Was the original Martini with olives or a lemon twist?

 

Martini has played in popular culture ever since its invention in 1849, or maybe it was the 1880s, or possibly 1906, who knows?  It might involve stories of gold miners going to the bar after striking it rich. Or was it because of a Rockfeller in a hotel in New York? Why and when did the name change from Martinez to Martini?

Whatever version you heard, it was definitely NOT concocted by Agent 007, who ordered his “shaken and not stirred” in Ian Fleming’s 1958 novel “Dr. No.

Gin Tasting № 1: Dansk Ny Gin

Why are Danish Gins so different from the rest of the world?

 

Denmark’s distilleries are being inventive and unorthodox, using ingredients that result in gins that differ wildly from the traditional bitter ones you may be used to.

These “Ny Dansk Gin” mavericks are making gin that is fun to taste: the result is an explosion of exquisite and unique-tasting gins that you can only find in Denmark.

Join Michael Sperling, a spirits specialist and writer, who is bringing 6 of the most interesting hidden Dansk gin gems for our tasting.

He’ll guide us through each of these special gins and, like a forensic scientist, will teach us how to uncover every single note behind the explosion of flavours found in every sip.

We promise you, you will never have a boring G&T after this evening.
