Here are some fun facts about gin. It was first made in Holland before being brought back to England by returning English soldiers in the 1600s. Gin and tonics were originally conceived as a treatment for malaria. Rumor has it the British Royal Family instructs their staff to clean the silverware using a few drops of gin applied to a fresh cotton pad. But our favorite fun fact is that gin is basically grain alcohol flavored with a variety of herbs and spices, which is why this Homemade Gin Kit is such a hit.
