I love a good G&T, especially in summer and the drink that is trending all over the world has experienced a revival similar to the great Gin Craze of the first half of the 18th Century.
Gin bars and gin tastings have become all the rage, especially at some of the more trendy spots in Cape Town and after centuries of mediocrity, the past five years have seen Gin holding its own once again.
Craft distillers have become creative with their gin infusions such as rooibos, honeybush and buchu becoming popular.
Has the current passion for gin reached its peak? Is everyone searching for the next big thing?
Cape Town has led the trend towards gin appreciation.
