1963 Gordon's gin advertisement

Gordon’s & Tonic:
English invention for coping with the noonday sun.

A retired English colonel, vividly recalling the heat of India, created the first gin & Tonic nearly 75 years ago. Did he use Gordon’s? Undoubtedly. For Gordon’s had already been a favoured English gin for over a century. Since then, gin-drinkers have found Gordon’s & Tonic refreshing as a sun-downer, too. And the have found that Gordon’s is the indispensable ingredient in a hose of summer drinks, from Tom Collinses to Orange Blossoms. Not to mention the cocktail-for-all-seasons, the glorious Gordon’s Martini. Hot enough for you? Tell the man “Gordon’s”, the biggest selling gin in England, America, the world.
