With America in the middle of a flourishing craft beer and craft spirits movement, it’s easy to forget that Prohibition was once the law of the land. One hundred years ago, on January 17, 1920, Prohibition went into effect. The law forbade the production of beverages that contained more than one-half of 1 percent alcohol. Breweries, wineries and distilleries across America were shuttered.
Gin was called bathtub gin in the northern cities. It was one of the most popular beverages of the era because it was usually the simplest, cheapest and fastest beverage to produce. Many gin cocktails owe their existence to bathtub gin, as they were also created in order to mask the unpleasant taste. Take some alcohol, thin it with water, add glycerin and juniper oil, and voila – Gin!
