Summary
In and out of both legality and popularity, gin is the only drink to be simultaneously shorthand for metropolitan glamour and alcoholic squalor. It crosses paths with all professions and cuts through class: from writers and artists to politicians, scientists, royalty, gin is a great leveller. 'Gin Glorious Gin' is funny, quirky, interesting, informative and full of famous names - Dickens to Churchill, Hogarth to Hemingway - as well as providing an entertaining account of the role gin has played in the history of the city of London
