The Gin Craze
The original Gin Craze occurred in the early 18th Century, when the working classes of Britain began tipping back gin cocktails so much that the Parliament had to pass acts limiting its consumption. Fast forward to this June 13—the weekend of the seventh-annual World Gin Day—and Detroit will have a Gin Craze of its own. Though this particular Gin Craze won’t result in the passing of legislation, it will give attendees the chance to sample gin and gin-based cocktails from some of the industry’s leading brands, including top local distillers. A portion of the event’s proceeds will also benefit Camp Casey, a nonprofit horseback-riding program for kids with cancer.
