The bottle itself is reminiscent of an old medicine bottle one would find back in the 20's. That is appropriate when considering the history of Gin itself. In early 17th century Holland it was produced as a medicine and sold in chemist shops to treat stomach ailments, gout and gallstones. British soldiers fighting in the Low Countries during the 30 Years' War were given 'Dutch Courage' during the long battles in the damp weather through the warming properties of gin. Eventually they started bringing it back home with them. I will be bringing some home with me on my next visit to the "apothecary".
