Quinine Gin now on the market

Launched on World Mosquito Day (20 August), 1897 Quinine Gin is made with cold-distilled quinine from the cinchona bark (the traditional source of quinine), along with 12 traditional gin botanicals. The cinchona bark, with pink and white grapefruit and lemon peels, are vacuum-distilled. The 1897 in the name comes from Sir Ronald Ross, a British medical doctor who conducted ground-breaking work on mosquitoes and the life cycle of the malarial parasite in 1897, and was subsequently awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on malaria, making him the first Englishman to become a Nobel laureate. Malaria is one of the world's biggest preventable killers and a major cause of poverty in Africa. The team behind the gin will donate at least £5 per bottle sold to Malaria No More UK. The recommended retail price is £39.95.
