A firm favourite amongst officers of the mess , whisky rather than rum was considered the ‘respectable’ spirit for members.

Introduced by the army of the British East India Company in the early 19th century, Gin & Tonic was born of medicinal experimentation to treat malaria. British officers in India took to adding a mixture of water, sugar, lime, and gin to the bitter quinine in order to make the drink more palatable. The cocktail soon became an iconic favourite amongst army officers and acquired a suave aura in their clubhouses.
