The Weird and Wild History of the Gin & Tonic
The iconic G&T is a delicious combination of malaria medicine and flea repellent with a squeeze of scurvy preventative. Yum. We will guide you through nearly 400 years of G&T history including the discovery of cinchona bark, the invention of the color mauve, why it’s really a Dutch drink, the creation of carbonation, practicing safe syrup, the true cause of the Spanish G&T renaissance, and more!
I'm giving a talk sponsored by Rutte gins on both days of the convention at 2:30 PM.

I've got a funky suit with tulips on it, Steffen Zimmermann will be my matching "maxi-me," we have a custom-designed stage set-up, and I'm pretty sure they're giving out copies of my book AKA G&T WTF to attendees.
