The Gin & Tonic has its origins in India during the nineteenth century, when British soldiers added gin to their tonic water to make it palatable. Tonic water is a carbonated beverage containing quinine, a bitter medication used to treat malaria. We make our tonic water from quinine tincture, gentian root, cinnamon, lemongrass, and citrus peels.
When new comers sit at the bar, they often see our taps and ask what beers we’re pouring. But our dual tap serves only two things: a house made ginger beer, and our G&T. Our house tonic is kegged with Castle & Key’s gin—their dry Restoration Gin, or their seasonal gin, depending on the rotation. Throughout the year, the familiar G&T is always a safe, flavorful bet.
