Who would have thought that so much could happen in such little time?! In 1985, the year that Marty McFly and Doc Brown fought the Libyans and jammed with Huey Lewis and the News on the Power of Love, Bombay Sapphire didn’t even exist - it only came to being in 1987 (contrary to what you think as the bottle and Queen Vic pic are meant to make you think it’s been around for centuries)! As gin’s fortunes looked doomed because of the vodka and Scotch whisky boom throughout the 1990s, along came Hendrick’s in 1999 to spice up the market. With its quirky branding and fun marketing campaign’s, Hendrick’s put the “gin” in “ginnovation”. But even with this splash in the spirits market, gin still didn’t quite have the kick it needed.
The kick came from craft 10 years on in 2009 when micro-distilleries in the UK began to take off starting with Sacred Spirits and Sipsmiths, two brands that are becoming household names. Six years later, on Back to the Future Day, October 21 2015, UK distilleries are leading the gin revolution. With microdistilleries in the US focusing on whiskies and vodkas, space has been left for these ambitious independent artisans to celebrate the UK’s quintessential spirit and create deliciousness for which you no longer need a flux capacitor and a Delorean to find.
So looking back to Marty and Doc’s quest to hit 88 mph, we’re very happy that all of the distilling entrepreneurs are taking us back to gin’s future.
Enjoy a craft G&T on your hoverboards, all you gin lovers!
