Gin & Tonic is one of the cocktails that have undergone a cycle of societal acceptance in a manner similar to fashion – it comes back in vogue and gets out in a cyclical manner. Having said that, the 2020s are the era of the G&T’s return; the bar calls itself a ginoteria!
Think about a gin you have had while traveling somewhere far away – and chances are that they have that brand of gin in stock. I went there with my Irish partner and her Danish friend and it was interesting to realize that they seemed to know a gin brand from Ireland that is nowhere to be seen in Switzerland.
The funny story about this place is that the co-owner happens to be a friend of mine – well, technically he is the owner’s partner, a super-smart & ambitious French lady. This friend of mine works at an auction house where they sell extremely exquisite and rare items from the world over to their rich client base. So when you finally go to this bar, you will see the effects of what happens when the owners have access to an amazing set of furniture’s from the world over. The ambience of this bar is literally out of this world. You should pay attention to the furniture in general as they might have an amazing back story behind different pieces.
I recommend getting a Monkey 47 here. They serve different G&Ts based on the gin that you order, so presentation may vary!
