Research Questions – Greenall’s Gin and my Peers Projects

Why do people drink gin?

“Gin and tonic can help fight malaria! The quinine in tonic water is what really helps malaria. But it has a bitter taste, which is complemented by the addition of gin. That’s the reason why British colonialists in India started to drink the combo in the first place”(Buzzfeed, 2013).

Why are Britain so proud of making gin?

The ‘Gin Craze’

“The Gin Craze was a period in the first half of the 18th century when the consumption of gin increased rapidly in Great Britain, especially in London” (Wikipedia 2016)

What influences the younger generation to drink alcohol?

“Recent years have seen the consumption of alcohol at population level reach an historical high, coupled with an increase in alcohol’s availability and affordability. These trends indicate a more central place
for alcohol in UK culture and, some argue, an increased ease with consumption above healthy levels across all age groups” (Seaman, P – 2010).
