Gin & Tonic, a drink which is now a trendy pastime and one that is so popular the world over was the “drug” that helped the British empire. The quinine in tonic was used as an antimalarial drug and so the “afternoon drink” was also a shot against the malarial mosquito. Today, “empire” is a dirty word. But the Gin & Tonic lives on. The drink went from a bitter medicinal tipple in tropical outposts to a mainstay of British clubs and bars by World War I and summer retreats and country club lounges in America.

”Interesting experience walking through Labrador Nature Reserve Trails with knowledgeable tour guide, Jeremy's narrative. He brought us through the process of 'Made in Singapore - Gin' and end the session with tasting 3 types of locally produced Gin 👍👍👍 Enjoyable tour especially for those whom interested to know more about WWII.Lye Leng17th Jan 2021
”Informative and insightful tour of Labrador Park. The guide was attentive, funny and engaging to help us understand the role of Labrador Park during WW2. Amazing to find out many hidden gems along the way, such as the observation towers and the machine gun "hideout". The gin tour is also informative and the tasting well curated. Highly recommended!Wenhui18th Jan 2021
