HOME OF THE ORIGINAL GIN PALACE.
In the 1600s gin was brought over from Holland by William of Orange, starting the Gin Craze in Britain. The drink was so plentiful it could be bought almost anywhere on the streets of London. By 1850 the Government was forced to license its sale and production. Soon after a couple of enterprising brothers called the Nicholson’s opened their first Gin Palace in 1873. More followed and they are still with us today, except now they’re known as pubs.
