Gin Explodes in German Popularity

the-duke-gin

If asked to speak about Germany, you might mention soccer, sausage, Oktoberfest, or – simply – beer. It is not a new beer trend that is overtaking Germany currently, but rather gin. The European country is currently experiencing a renaissance of sorts, with gin production going through the roof to match the insatiable demand sweeping over the country. Gin and tonics are all the rage currently, being consumed both at bars and in the home. The most popular brand of gin is Monkey 47, which was recently acquired by Pernod Ricard.
