THE WORLD’S GREAT DRINKS BEGIN WITH GILBEY’S GIN
A HOT afternoon “Down-under” in Australia. You’re in the bar of Brisbane’s swank Belle View Hotel. You say to the bartender … “What’s the best way to cool a fellow’s throat on a day like this?” … and what happens? Why, the bartender reaches for the Gilbey’s Gin bottle and you find yourself with a shimmering, icicled glass of Shandy in your hand! And what a gra-a-a-nd drink it is!
Of course, it’s only natural that Australia’s favorite hot-weather drink begins with Gilbey’s Gin. Most of the world’s great gin drinks do … and have for over 80 years!
But what you must remember is that you, here in America, can have in your Martinis and Fizzes and Collins and Rickeys the same silken fulness of flavor that has been making the world’s great drinks greater for generations! And all you have to do, whether it’s a drink or a bottle you want, is to order … “Gilbey’s”.
