    Ever read '1984' (yes you did)? This article tells more about the gin, from a professor of Chemistry's point of view.

    I hate unexplained acronyms! What the hell is a "STEM field"?:confused1:Apart from that, I particularly liked the reference to Clove Gin as I am currently waiting for the Clove flavours in my Spiced Pumpkin Ale to moderate!:thumb1:

    2.5 liters of Sbiten (Russian sort of Gluhwein) with a tabelspoon of cloves was VERY interesting. Cherishing the remaining half liter in the fridge :(

    Interesting article! Gin is to 1984 what soma is to Brave New World almost. I hadn't made that connection before... I might have to dig my old copy out for as re-read.

    I first read it as a youngster and it gave me such a bad impression of gin I didn't try it for a long time - shame really given how tasty it is!
