Back home, I often feel like I’m the only person in America that will order a gin and tonic not by accident. I rarely see it on a cocktail menu, I never hear it being ordered, and I consider myself exceptionally lucky if they have a Gin option other than Tanqueray.
Scots must drink gin and tonic to rehydrate after a late night of drinking hassbeer and scotch.
In the past twenty minutes of working on this blog post, I’ve probably heard as many gin and tonic orders. When we’ve gone out for lunch or dinner, entire pages are dedicated to the gin list. I like gin, and I only know of probably five brands. My world has just grown exponentially in a very short period of time.
Now, granted, they don’t devote any pages to the scotch menu. For that, they have a scotch ambassador.
Words. None. I have. Scotland. Heap. Awesome.
