THE WORLD’S GREAT DRINKS BEGIN WITH GILBEY’S GIN
THE old “Viceroy of India”, pride of the P & O fleet, has scarcely nosed her way into the Red Sea before you begin to hear rumors of the “Pink Gin” they serve at Aden. “Don’t miss it” they tell you, “it’s one of the world’s great drinks.”
And then you find yourself one evening on the Union Club verandah at Aden, watching the stars blossom in the Arabian skies. And Suddenly beside von stands a smiling Indian boy with that far-famed “pink gin” … and for
to delightful minutes, each glorious sip throws new light on why Gilbey’s has been one of the world’s great gins for over 80 years … and why so many of the world’s great drinks begin with Gilbey’s. Remember, in mixing or ordering your favorite drinks … great drinks and Gilbey’s always go together!
